Short List Emerges to Replace Gonzales

Following up on our post Monday, With Gonzales Gone, Who's Next? the Associated Press is reporting -- with credit to a "senior Bush administration official" -- that five names have come to the top of the list as possible replacements for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, while the full list of "possible, if highly speculative candidates" could number as many as 24.

Short-list candidates identified by AP are Ted Olson, former solictor general and now a partner with Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher; George J. Terwilliger III, deputy AG under former President George H.W. Bush and now a partner with White & Case; Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, former chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee; Larry D. Thompson, former deputy attorney general and now GC of PepsiCo; and the acting AG, Solicitor General Paul D. Clement.
