GOP senator: fire Gonzales

From NBC's Ken Strickland
New Hampshire Sen. John Sununu (R), who's up for re-election next year, is now the first Republican to call from Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to be fired. "If the Attorney General isn't credible, then he cannot be effective and help the president implement good policy to deal with terrorism investigations and prosecutions and homeland security issues and the management of the justice department," he said.

"This is driven by far more than one single problem or one single incident. There have been problems within the department and difficulties between Congress and the attorney general going back 18 months."

"I think the president should fire the attorney general and replace him so that he has someone who's strong and aggressive and can be assertive on the president's behalf"
