The Corner

Ag Gonzales


I’m inclined to support him. He will, as Shannen says, basically be a good soldier there, and administration policy is set on most things that might inspire conservative worries about him. I think the “torture memos” get raised during confirmation but do not sink him. And I think that Gonzales is now out for the Supreme Court, not only this year but for all time. Modern AGs get scuffed up in politics, and especially will get scuffed up in this administration. My guess is that Gonzales gets confirmed by the Senate–for the last time.
