Judge Gonzales to the Judiciary Committee: "I want to make very clear that I am deeply committed to the rule of law."

It's a shame, really, that it is even necessary to make such a thing "very clear," when you're steps away from being confirmed as the nation's top lawyer. What's even more of a shame is that the validity of this statement is up for debate. For background, see Salon's two stories today on Gonzales' record.
