Re: Ashcroft as VP

By on 7.21.08 | 11:55AM

Philip, the beuauty of Ashcroft as VP is that the new narrative is that Ashcroft was FIGHTING the White House, on behalf of the Constitution, and that he resisted White House pressure numerous times, and that the White House in turn rejected his highly respected choices for top Justice slots and instead tried to force JohnYoo down his throat. So now he is the heroic internal dissenter, but who had the grace not to go out whining and making money off it like, for instance, McClellan did.
