Snow, Bolton, Bolten, Snow

This administration really seems to be economizing on names lately. First we have John Snow, Secretary of the Treasury. Then, after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, we got John Bolton, Ambassador to the U.N. Recently, after the departure of Andy Card from Chief of Staff, we got Josh Bolten. And now, one of Bolten personnel changes was to replace White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan with Tony Snow. This is really starting to get confusing, especially when all these guys are referred to by their last names in the news. The next person who joins this administration better have a wholly unused name. If not, he or she should be required to change his or her name as a condition of hiring.
