The chairman of President Bush's National Economic Council, will announce Wednesday that he's leaving his post. By doing so, Al Hubbard joins a growing line of top presidential advisers exiting the White House as the Bush administration heads into its final year.

A senior administration official says Hubbard will officially resign with a letter to the President later today. Hubbard has served as assistant to the president for economic policy for three years.

His departure continues an exodus of key aides and confidants. Earlier this month, Fran Townsend, Bush's terrorism adviser, announced she was stepping down after 4 1/2 years. Top aide Karl Rove, along with press secretary Tony Snow, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and senior presidential adviser Dan Bartlett, have also left.

Hubbard, who is married and has three children, has owned and
operated several businesses. He has not yet announced his future plans.
