Bill Minutaglio Guest On "The Dickson/Chappell Report" July 8th
The first and only biography of the most controversial U.S. Attorney General in recent memory.
In defiance of expectations, statistics, and stereotypes, Alberto Gonzales has risen to become one of the most powerful men in America. Gonzales has been the nexus for key policy points for the Bush administration, and holds inflammatory and very influential positions on issues that seize and polarize the nation -- privacy, capital punishment, and torture.
Gonzales's unyielding loyalty to George W. Bush -- during a time when to call his presidency "controversial" would be an understatement of massive proportions -- is a fascinating study in the politics of ambition.
