The White House is ditching Alberto Gonzalez, according to Politico.com. But quietly, because only last week President Bush's people were saying they hoped Gonzalez would stay, though Bushologists know a vote of confidence from The Man is the kiss of death; ask Michael "Brownie" Brown or Donald "Fantastic Job" Rumsfeld.
Our bet to replace him: Michael Chertoff, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. His distinction? Bill Clinton ousted every U.S. Attorney when he took office -- save for Chertoff. He's got coin with Democrats in Congress and Bush can't afford any confirmation fight. Only Gonzalez stands in the way of making it happen.
