Chertoff is an interesting choice

Attorney General Gonzales resigns, officials say - "President Bush will likely nominate Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff to the position, senior administration officials said. Clay Johnson, deputy director for management at the Office of Management and Budget, would replace Chertoff, the officials said."
The rumor I read over the weekend thought that Chertoff would be easier to get through the confirmation process because he was a known quantity and because he had no connections to the US Attorney scandal. But that won't stop the US Attorney scandal from being part of the confirmation process, but won't it also bring in Katrina? If you are a Senator, wouldn't you take this opportunity to ask questions about the screwups?
