Former Colorado Attorney General Gale Norton has formally announced her resignation as Interior Department Secretary after more than 5-years as part of President Bush's cabinet.
In her resignation letter to President Bush, Norton says, "As a person deeply committed to bipartisan and civil public discourse, one aspect of Washington I will not miss is the divisiveness that too often prevails."
