A PROBLEM WITH GONZALEZ?

President Bush a has announced that he will appoint White House counsel Alberto Gonzalez to be US Attorney General.

Look for a surprise! Opposition to his appointment will not come from Democrats but from conservative Republicans.

When Gonzalez was a justice on the Texas Supreme Court, he wrote the opinion that allowed minor females to have abortions without parental permission.

John Ashcroft is an evangelical Christian. Will other evangelicals be disgusted by his being replaced by a man who is soft on abortion? Will they organize the kind of campaign against Gonzalez that they have launched against Senator Specter becoming chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee?
