AG Gone?

If the Paper Chase is correct, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez may soon be on his way out:

Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA), the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, predicted Thursday that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales will resign from his post at the conclusion of current investigations into the allegedly-political firings of federal prosecutors. Specter's comments followed others made by Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) Wednesday, who suggested that by remaining in his position, Gonzales was harming the Justice Department. Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) concurred, telling the Associated Press that it was noteworthy that Gonzales is spending more time on Capitol Hill defending himself than working as the Attorney General.

I'll be depressed when this happens.

No need to feel depressed conyank, he ain't goin' nowhere (yet). Bush's worst fear right now is an honest man as A.G.

ec1009, great innuendo, but you offer no logical discussion as to why President Bush would fear an honest AG, or that the current AG is not honest. Your hate Bush rhetoric is tired and old, simply not worth the time to type this response.

Now I am no fan of our AG. He is weak and a bumbler, but to back down yet again to Democrat bully tactics is tragic.
