I must admit I know next to nothing about the Attorney General designate, Michael Mukasey. However, I predict an easy confirmation. Most Democrats seem happy with the choice, and while some conservatives were willing to go to bat for Ted Olsen, it was not going to happen. As I noted during the immigration bill debacle, President Bush has no political capital left. It is better to go with someone who you can confirm than go to the mattresses at this point for someone who will not be confirmed.
