Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I can't think of one single member of the Bush administration that has ever had inherent "moral authority".

They have only had perceived "moral authority" due to the willingness of our so called "free press" to create that appearance.

One attorney I know says a Gonzales resignation is inevitable. However, Bush and his neo-conservative handlers will remain loathe to remove the prime architect of an ongoing ideological purge within the Dept of Justice.

No entities of our governments departments, agencies, etc to my knowledge have avoided six years of continuous ideological purging, which I expect to continue to the last days of this regime's rule.  

NVA, a viable option when the political process fails.

I can't see Gonzales going. He proved the underlying Bush principle of the unitary executive with his performance. WE decide, you don't. We'll tell you what we want you to know and will tell you nothing else. We are king and you are dominion.

He did his job.

I really have no problem with Gonzales staying on. Politically he is hurt so badly that he can do very little (more) harm, and no conceivable replacement is going to restore DoJ's integrity until regime change day.

All he will do (and this is what the deciderator fails to grasp) is function as a great big scarlet letter indelibly affixed to the administration's breast, continually reminding all who see just how bad - immoral - these people really are.

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
