Gonzalez, who will be our nation's first Hispanic Attorney General, was also examined by Latino groups belonging to the Conference:
Notably absent was the largest Latino organization, the National Council of La Raza, which praised Gonzales and raised no objections to his nomination when it was announced.They evidently recognize the ground being broken by the Bush Administration and Mr. Gonzalez and its import to their cause. And Gonzalez's qualifications.
The Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, an influential California group that has called for close scrutiny of Gonzales, also did not sign the letter.
Unlike certain black groups with Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, these two Hispanic groups are not invoking hateful caricatures to characterize the nominee.
The IAEA passed a resolution Monday thanking Iran for promising not to make nukes. This is what Iran agreed – with France, Germany, and the U.K. – to do in exchange for goodies.
Accepting the mullahs at their word. Is this being done to spite President Bush and the Americans? These are awfully high stakes for a game of political "nyaaah, nyaaah, nyaag,"
