The Ultimate Yes Man

Pres. Bush has developed a reputation for surrounding himself with staff members who will tell him what he wants to hear, get him the outcome he wants to have, and keep any doubts, questions, concerns, or reservations they have to themselves. Alberto Gonzalez, Bush's pick for Attorney General to succeed John Ashcroft, is such a man. He will get his client the legal result his client wants - whether the law allows for it or not. Dahlia Lithwick, a writer for Slate and a lawyer herself, reports on the ultimate yes man.
