WASHINGTON, Nov. 15 (UPI) -- U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage may follow his boss, Colin Powell, and resign his post, the State Department said Monday.

"I don't know whether he's actually submitted one (letter) yet or not," department spokesman Richard Boucher said. "I think all of us realize that the two of them ... have been a very successful team."

Powell announced his resignation Monday. Although it's unclear whether Armitage will remain, Boucher said: "It's like Bosnia. In together, out together."

Armitage played a key role, along with Powell, in solving global crises during the past four years.
