Iowa Insider: Bill Richardson wins the race to denounce Gonzales

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Insider

The inevitable statements from the presidential campaigns on U.S.
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' resignation took a short time to
hit my inbox. New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson was the first out of the
gate. "The resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is long
overdue," Richardson said in a statement. "The President must nominate
an Attorney General who is a lawyer for the American people not a
political arm of the White House." Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del, was next:
"As I've said before, Attorney General Gonzales has lost the
confidence of the vast majority of the American people and the
Congress. His resignation is long overdue. When I voted against
Attorney General Gonzales' confirmation, I voiced concern about his
ability to go from being the President's lawyer to the people's
lawyer."
