    Which is Lynch's point. She didn't make any determinative statement as to whether or not the practice should be halted altogether, she was simply commenting on the public controversy that it has drawn.

    Yes, what with all of the racial division, and illegal gun running Gonzales did....Oh wait...

    Apparently, huh? Something tells me you're assuming so because of your own personal tendencies, and not based upon anything substantive. Regardless of whether or not she benefited from AA in her collegiate years, she appears to have had a overly successful career. Being both a top flight attorney and a member of the Fed's board of Governors is nothing to sneeze at.

    And yet he never seems to find new ways to disappoint. In that way, he is truly remarkable.

    Somehow I suspect his expectations are very different from those he tries to communicate. He's a wolf in (bad) sheeps clothing.

    What's her record as an attorney? Any prominent cases that she successfully prosecuted? And what does sitting on the board for the Fed have to do with being AG?

    My how things have changed. A Republican white guy used his AG for his own political protection and one went to prison, the other driven from office, but Obama gets to mull over whether to nominate now or after the new opposition comes in.

    Personally, as a journalist during the Watergate Era, I cannot help but feel that America has lost its last, best chance at redemption and that now all is lost....From this date forward presidents will all be able to hail these precedents and become petty dictators with pens and phones and gulags
    This POTUS is more Nixonian than Nixon ever was.

    A few years back for Halloween I went as Diogenes, lamp and all.

    There is always a lot of blather about cabinet nominees.
    This is an unfortunate picture of Lynch, though.....

Today we do not vote for a Representative to represent us or a senator to go to Washington to represent our state. We vote for a Representative and a Senator to go to Washington to represent the party they are a member of. The will and wishes of the people and of the state they are from is lost.

    I see no hope of respecting the wishes of the people who elect these officials to ever take them into consideration. It is all party.
    This is one reason there is a movement to repeal the 17th amendment thereby having the state legislature directly appoint senators (as was done historically) vs the popular vote in play now as with the house. I have mixed feelings on it but it might be a solution.
