Obama re-nominates fired U.S. Atty

From NBC's Pete Williams

One of the U.S. Attorneys fired by former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is making a comeback, nominated today to return to his old job.

President Obama has nominated Daniel Bogden to be the top federal prosecutor in Nevada.  Bodgen was the US attorney there in the George W. Bush administration for five years until he was fired in December 2006, one of nine who were forced out. 

Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada had pushed for the nomination. His spokesman has said it would help correct a past wrong.
