Could the more experienced and much cleaner Michael Chertoff, current head of Homeland Security replace beleaguered Alberto Gonzales?

That's what US News and World Report is suggesting in their Washington Whispers section,

'Officials say he's got fans on Capitol Hill, is untouched by the Justice prosecutor scandal, and has more experience than Gonzales did, having served as a federal judge and assistant attorney general."

But Chertoff is not as clean as his Capitol hill supporters might think, as we reported three years ago, before he was appointed homeland security chief. Alan Duncan's article, New Jersey and Terrorism… Perfect Together;  describes how Chertoff represented people with strong terrorist connections.

Still, Chertoff  could end up being better than Gonzales. A dead dog would be a better AG than Gonzales (there are yellow dog Dems, blue dog dems, why not a dead dog AG-- better because it can't lie. )

Chertoff would probably sail through the vetting process in the senate.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
