  •  Dodd is Right, But... (none)
    Dodd is absolutely right in his position.

    However, upholding the laws of the United States,
    and protecting the rights of its citizens under the Constitution is a necessary qualification
    for an Attorney General to hold. Gonzales does not meet this qualification. I man who creates a justification for the illegal, in defense after the fact, but before the act takes place as a matter of policy, is grossly unqualified to serve as the nation's highest law enforcement officer.

    The President should be given deference on who he appoints to his cabinet. Ideology should not be a consideration in the process. But if he nominates someone who is as poorly qualified as Gonzales it is the duty of the Senate to reject such a nomination.
