Yes, President Bush is partly correct when he states in commenting on the Gonzales resignation that Gonzales was "dragged through the mud for political reasons." But the political reasons were that he had "fired" U.S. Attorneys for political reasons. The comments and criticisms of the AG crossed party lines and it is important for the President to recognize this in selecting the next Attorney General. What is more important then ever before is that the appointee to this office restore the DOJ as a non-political entity of the government.
