Aside from the Larry Craig news (Romney, for whom Craig was campaign Senate co-chair, is quickly making clear he’ll have nothing further to do with him) there are some tidbits of news on other fronts: 1) By Thursday of this week, according to Michigan state Chair Saul Anuzis, we should know if Michigan will indeed have an open primary on January 15. If so the scramble starts again to revise campaign strategies. 2) Jonathan Martin has solid interview with and look at Fred Thompson who lets on that he may have weak fundraising numbers to reveal by September and concedes Bill Lacy “hasn’t yet” bought order to the campaign. 3) If you think that whole democracy mission may not have been such a good idea for the Middle East, one of Rudy’s advisors agrees.
As for a Gonzales replacement, I think it unlikely that a top flight candidate from outside the administration — at least one with a decent job or the prospect of one — would join the Bush team at this point so I’ll go out on a mini-limb and predict Paul Clement will stay for the remainder of the term. He is a highly respected lawyer and the Bush administration at this juncture would be lucky to have him.
