Thanks, But No Thanks

"For decades, the best and brightest law school graduates of any generation would battle over the handful of openings at main Justice and with various U.S. attorneys offices.

No longer. Today, association with the Gonzales Justice Department is feared as a taint on any lawyer’s résumé."

I’d Rather Trade Places with Jose Padilla

"And here’s the best evidence I have seen of this so far. When asked if he would take Paul J. McNulty’s slot as Deputy Attorney General, the man who ran the Office of Legal Policy for John Ashcroft, Viet Dinh, has an instant response: 'I’d rather trade places with Jose Padilla,' he says, referring to a man [ed. - a US citizen, we'd hasten to add] who was tortured and placed in solitary confinement in the Naval brig in South Carolina."

Held there for three years without charges.

Guess you could say Dinh really doesn't want the job.
