Gonzo's out, Chertoff's in.

So Gonzales has finally faced reality, that his position is no longer tenable. And Chertoff is being floated as his replacement.

That ought to please everybody. He's got more legal experience at the federal level than Gonzo had, and appears to be one of the few executive branch officials who wasn't involved with firing federal prosecutors. That'll please the Democrats. And, as we saw in the Katrina response, he's got the right combination of ideology-and-politics-before-all-else and raw incompetence that this Administration demands.

So everyone wins.
