Are you kidding zardoz? That's what we said when Ashcroft resigned and Gonzales was 10 times worse. The next AG will probably be the former head of the Nicaragua death squads.
Can he be compelled to testify if he is no longer in employ of the executive branch?
If the new candidate does go to confirmation I’m sure all the White House water carriers will be all over the networks complaining that the Democrats are using partisan politics to delay filling a vacancy that is vital to National Security during this time of terror and war. Blah blah blah.
I implore you to call the Senate into an immediate pro forma session, and to call every Senator personally to ask them to get on a plane back to DC as soon as humanly possible. The only reason the administration chose to keep Alberto Gonzalez's resignation secret for the weekend is to allow George Bush to use a recess appointment to hand-pick a successor without congressional checks. I'm afraid that whoever he picks will continue Gonzalez's devotion to the White House and will not return the office to the role of Attorney of the People.
