Did Bush just make a serious mistake? Bush has apparently tapped White House counsel Alberto Gonzalez to succeed Ashcroft as Attorney General. Gonzalez was the author of several memos that tried to justify some of the more extreme measures used at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib. By nominating Gonzalez, Bush has offered the Democrats the opportunity to re-introduce the subject of Abu Ghraib into the political dialog. If every discussion of Gonzalez over the coming weeks results in the display of this image then the Democrats could inflict some serious damage on Bush right out of the gate.
