Frank Rich on Plamegate

the nearly-always-excellent frank rich writes a long and quite readable synopsis of plamegate and tosses in this overlooked tidbit...
When the president decided not to replace Sandra Day O'Connor with a woman, why did he pick a white guy and not nominate the first Hispanic justice, his friend Alberto Gonzales? Mr. Bush was surely not scared off by Gonzales critics on the right (who find him soft on abortion) or left (who find him soft on the Geneva Conventions). It's Mr. Gonzales's proximity to this [Plamegate] scandal that inspires real fear.

doggone... such a shame... the confirmation hearings would have been s-o-o-o-o interesting too...!
