Bush: What will Chuck do?

What will Sen. Chuck Schumer (D) do regarding Mukasey? "Schumer, who has remained uncharacteristically quiet throughout the furor, said in an interview yesterday that he is now 'wrestling' with whether to vote against a nomination that he was instrumental in bringing about. He compared the controversy to the 2005 nomination battle over Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. 'From this administration, we will never get somebody who agrees with us on issues like torture and wiretapping,' Schumer said at one point, suggesting an argument in favor of Mukasey, who faces a Senate Judiciary Committee vote on Tuesday. 'The best thing we can hope for is someone who will depoliticize the Justice Department and put rule of law first.'"
