Bradley Graham on Rumsfeld vs. Gates: a matter of style

From Tom Ricks' blog, a quote from Bradley Graham:
While Rumsfeld in six years fired only one top official (Tom White), Gates in two-and-a-half years has already removed six (Harvey, Pace, Fallon, Wynn, Moseley and McKiernan). And yet Gates has none of the bullying, domineering image that Rumsfeld seemed to cultivate. Rather, he has demonstrated an ability to exercise strong civilian leadership with reason and just cause.

Graham also does a Rumsfeld versus McNamara in the piece... overall, a great read.
