I do think that he had become a liability, and I think that Gonzales unfortunately was unable to put forth an appearance of independence from GW. Its too bad for him personally, of course, but he came across as completely outclassed for this role.
Oh well. Will be interesting to see what momentum if any GW can pick up with nominating someone new.
