Alberto Gonzales just described what he views as the proper standard for firing a U.S. attorney -- a standard that might be applied just as well to the attorney general himself: "There is nothing improper in making a change for poor management, policy differences or questionable judgment, or simply to have another qualified individual serve. I think we agree on that."
