George Walker Bush announced last night that he will resign as the 43rd President of the United States at noon today.
Al Gore and John Kerry will take the oath as new co-President's at noon to complete the remaining 2 1/2 years of Mr. Bush's term.
After five years of bitter public debate over scandals abroad, deception at home, fraudulent elections and unconstitutional spying and surveillance, President Bush bowed to pressures from the public and leaders of his party to become the second President in American history to resign.
"By taking this action," he said in a subdued yet dramatic television address on Fox News, "I hope that I will have hastened the start of the process of healing which is so desperately needed in America."
