No on Gonzales

While I tend to default to the position of a president's choices for his cabinet to be his/her prerogative, for the following reasons I have to abandon that position with respect to the Gonzales nomination for Attorney General.
As a law student, I realize that legal opinions have real world consequences. And, as White House counsel, Gonzales presided over an apparatus that not only approved of torture, but misused the tools of the legal profession to subvert American values and human rights. Such a man is unfit to be the people's attorney or the highest ranking law enforcement official in the United States.
