Politically Speaking: Gonzales gone

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

With word this morning that embattled (no other adjective fits better)
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has resigned, the reaction from
tri-state legislators is trickling in. The latest was the most concise
- Nebraska 1st District Congressman Jeff Fortenberry says, "I think
it's the right decision. (Gonzales') ability to govern has been
significantly diminished." So with Republican Fortenberry saying that,
it's not a case of all Republicans backing the Bush administration's
guy, there has been considerable erosion of support for Gonzales.
Another Republican, U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa, said the
Democrats claimed a scalp after criticism of Gonzales, but Grassley
contended the attorney general had a good record in protecting
children by aggressively pursuing child predators. But Grassley
conceded, "Obviously, the last couple of years have been very tough
for him."
