Claim to fame:
He is currently basking in the glory of war. It is a miracle this man is in the limelight at all, he was widely regarded as "politically dead", without any serious political potential.
Alas, since GWB failed in creating any bilateral support from among the mainstream players, he had to resort to the neo-conservative loons from the far-right "thinktanks" to implement his agenda, hence we have people like Rumsfield running the show.
Where are they now?
Rumsfeld's lease on life extended with a GWB re-election stunner. That said, his star seems on the wane even before the election.
Best Case Scenario: We make it to another 4 years without WWIII starting. Rumsfield is forgotten somewhere along the way and attempts to hit the lecture circuit and writes articles for Foreign Affairs
Worst Case Scenario: All hell breaks loose and he goes the way of a Nixon crony: to prison, being a patsy in the fallout of a Baby Bush impeachment fracas.
