Gonzales Resigns

The New York Times reports Alberto Gonzalez has resigned as Attorney General:

The official who disclosed the resignation today said that the decision was Mr. Gonzales’s and that the president accepted it grudgingly. At the same time, the official acknowledged that the turmoil over Mr. Gonzales had made his continuing as attorney general difficult.

Gonzales submitted his to President Bush by telephone on Friday.

According to the Times, President Bush will not leave the position open long.

The President had better select a squeaky clean paragon of virtue to replace Gonzales. The confirmation process will be the political equivalent of sharks reacting to blood in the water.
