Matt Drudge is reporting that sources have informed him that Ted Olson will be President Bush's nomination for U.S. Attorney General.
If confirmed by the senate, Olson would be Bush's third attorney general. John Ashcroft served in the first term while Alberto Gonzales (who has stepped down) has served in the second term.
I would be shocked if New York senator and likely Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton votes to confirm Olson. If his name familiar, it should. His wife, the late Barbara Olson, wrote two critical books about the Clintons: Hell to Pay: The Unfolding Story of Hillary Rodham Clinton (published in November 1999) and The Final Days: The Last, Desperate Abuses of Power by the Clinton White House (published posthumously in October 2001).
Mrs. Olson was on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
