Apparently, in the State of Exception authoring memos which put the U.S. government on record for the first time in its history as sanctioning the use of torture is not enough to prevent one's confirmation as Attorney General by the Senate Judiciary Committee. However, failing to disclose and then denying one's role in covering up the President's (then Governor) embarrassing DUI may be just the hitch that grinds the whole process to a halt. This may be the story with White House counsel Alberto Gonzales's nomination for the cabinet post. See Michael Isikoff's Newsweek article.
