Kerry Welcomes White House Shift for Attorney General

Sen. John Kerry issued the following statement today, in response to President Bush's nomination of Judge Michael Mukasey to be the nation's 81st Attorney General.

"It's welcome news that the White House seems to have listened to Americans who are tired of being divided along ideological lines, and appears to have chosen in Judge Mukasey someone without a lot of the partisan baggage that has tarnished the last two attorney generals in this administration," Kerry said. "I am optimistic that Judge Mukasey has the background and independent record needed to restore credibility to the Justice Department. I am hopeful he will work with Congress instead of against it as we continue the open investigations into improper conduct in the Department. I will withhold final judgment until after the Senate confirmation hearings but I am heartened that the Administration appears to have found a candidate who will not put party loyalty over the rule of law."
