    That "first woman AG" modified "Reno's buddy" and not "her." Sorry for my confusion.

      I was meaning to refer to all the "creds" he(Bush) could get by tieing in Townsend with Reno.  Reno was first woman AG and the etcs were things like, she(Reno) is a Dem, was appointed by Clinton, allowed lots of independent investigations against even the then sitting President, yada yada.  Given that candidates are going to have a tough nomination process, I don't think he has any other than Townsend that he can both trust so much, and yet still have those kinds of ties to shore them up to make it difficult for Dems to shoot them down.

      Despite SNL episodes, I think Reno's gender is very clear.  g
