Gonzales Steps Down

ABC.com has a good article on the upcoming process to confirm a new US Attorney General. Current AG Alberto Gonzales, mired in controversy, submitted his resignation on Monday. As indicated by ABC News, this will be the first time Pres. Bush sends an AG nominee to the Democratically controlled Senate.

The Jamestown Lawyer's initial hunch is that a sitting Senator will be offered the post. Hearings on the confirmation would then have an additional layer of fraternal respect. Otherwise, I would expect the Senate to use the hearings as a public forum to question administration policies in bruising detail.
