Alberto Gonzales 

By the way, some people might understandably think that I'm against Gonzales's nomination because of the torture memos. I'm not. I don't necessarily know what his role was - and, as a lawyer, if someone told him to form an argument justifying torture, then it was within his rights to do so. That's a lawyer's job. To be honest, I find the allegations relating to his evaluation of Texas death row claims more disturbing, because it indicates that he may have done a poor job on a serious issue. He certainly should have been publically called to account on both these issues; as to rather he'd be a good attorney general, I just don't know.
