In any case, we wish him well as he battles the disease.
That said, we do question one aspect of his explanation for leaving the White House: money. NBC reported today that Snow cited family finances as his reason for resigning. Here's part of the NBC story:
"If I had the dough I'd stay 'til the bitter end,” Snow told NBC News. As an assistant to the President, Snow earns the highest-level salary among White House officials at $168,000 a year.
Pardon our innocence, but is $168,000 really such a paltry salary? Maybe we're just used to paltry Oklahoma salaries, but it seems as if Snow and his family could get by on $168,000, even in Washington, D.C.
