    I think that any candidate that the Senate would confirm would lead pretty quickly to Bush's impeachment.  Any AG following the law is going to have to let a good percentage of the investigations AGAG has delayed or obstructed go forward. Bush cannot afford this.  There's so much sludge backed up behind the dam that the administration would drown on it.

    So only two possibilities remain:

    1. A recess appointment, and
    2. Not appointing a new AG at all, and continue to the bitter end with an "Acting" AG.

    I'm betting on #2, since IIRC the current Assistant AG is a tool, and would do a pretty good job of obstructing justice as ordered.
