Keeping Their Powder Dry:

Republican Senate aides predict White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales will win easy confirmation as attorney general, perhaps as early as Inauguration Day. Gonzales endured over six hours of testimony on January 6 for his role in setting Bush Administration policies on detained terrorists.
