"Gonzales resigns: Obama reaction"
White House hopeful Barack Obama is out with a statement Monday reacting to Alberto Gonzales' resignation:
"I have long believed that Alberto Gonzales subverted justice to promote a political agenda, and so I am pleased that he has finally resigned today," he said. "The president needs to nominate an Attorney General who will be the people's lawyer, not the President's lawyer, and in an Obama Administration that person will first and foremost defend and promote the rights and liberties enshrined in our Constitution."
