Ted Olson on Fred Fielding.

Published March 16, 2007 3:56PM (EDT)

Former Solicitor General Ted Olson on the uphill fight Fred Fielding is facing as White House counsel and the president's fix-it man on the prosecutor purge: "The best time to be the White House counsel is just after your candidate, or the president who hires you, has won by a monstrous 49-state landslide and takes both houses of Congress. Fred's done it the wrong way."
