Published: Tuesday March 27, 2007

"Atty. Gen. Alberto Gonzales and U.S. Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald are scheduled to appear together Tuesday for the first time since information surfaced that Fitzgerald received a mediocre rating in a Justice Department review," according to Tuesday editions of the Chicago Tribune.

"Gonzales is scheduled to appear at the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse in Chicago to discuss the "Project Safe Childhood" campaign -- designed to protect kids from online predators -- with Fitzgerald and Ernie Allen, chief executive of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children," the Tibune says. "But he's likely to face reporters' questions about Fitzgerald being ranked as undistinguished on a chart sent from his department to the White House in 2005, as well as the controversial fall firings of a group of U.S. attorneys.

According to the paper, Fitzgerald's mediocre rating "has been the subject of much joking among prosecutors, federal agents, defense lawyers and the media in the city, especially at the building where Fitzgerald has earned accolades for sweeping public corruption investigations."

Ditto that...

And a Combination of Feingold and Ron Paul...

Either one could be President and Either one could be the others VP.

Criteria One: Drop GOP and DEM affiliations and go Independent!

And Independent President and an Independent VP would be just what this nation needs right now!

;)

I never thought I would say it.. but I agree with you on this. I've always been a DEM but now I see the need for a total change in this country and Independent may be what we need! ;)

Fitzgerald has integrity. This automatically disqualifies him from holding any cabinet post in the current Administration.

He also is bright ... that breaks rule #2.

He is truthful ... oops 3 down.

He has an actual skill set and is not just smoke and mirrors. Strike #4.

Fitzy cannot ever make it as a Bushie. Like growing hair on a turtle.

I would definitely like to see Fitz as AG but definitely not in this Admin. Like being slimed.

And GED, I'm a huge fan of Russ Feingold, was hoping he would run, signed up as a supporter.

Can't wait for the reporters in Chicago to nail Gonzo on the "mediocre" rating. He'll be backtracking all over that one. He's not really smart enough to deflect everything thrown at him, a simple guy who might have had a decent career if someone hadn't given him the keys to the kingdom.

Aiming high is a good thing, jumping too high is dangerous.
