Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo reminds us about the big picture:

But let’s not get distracted by Alberto Gonzales. He’s just a cog. In almost every case, what we’re talking about here is Gonzales’s willingness to take orders from the White House — most importantly from Karl Rove and President Bush — on firing US Attorneys for corrupt purposes and using the Justice Department to suppress Democratic turnout in swing states. Mr. Gonzales is a secondary issue. The real players are in the White House.

Indeed. And we still don’t have any response (that I know of) from Sen. Pete Domenici on whether he called Bush personally to complain about former US Attorney David Iglesias.
