Why Gonzales is Staying
By and large, I think Josh Marshall is right about Gonzales staying. If he were to go, there would be a full airing of all the Justice Department's dirty laundry. Right now, Gonzales is sitting on top of an absolute gold mine of Justice Department misdeeds and the Bush administration is not going to let that go public. Also, if he were to resign, the Democrats would be responsible for confirming his replacement and the replacement AG would almost certainly be more willing to work with Congress.
