Why would a new administration fire all of the attorneys from the previous administration besides that fact that they wanted ideological partisans in place?
It's a question of priorities.
The priorities of the incoming administration generally differ from those of the outgoing one.
when Clinton was still in office, the AGs office was busy fighting terrorism. When Ashcroft took over pornography became our greatest enemy. Good thing too or else we would have been unprepared when those giant dildos hit the WTC, right?
Seriously tho - a new administration wants to put together a team who will work towards a common goal, like stamping out terror or porno. Nothing wrong with that. But eliminating political opponents through prosecution? That's a whole 'nuther ball-o-wax. Can you REALLY not see the dif or are you just being your usual obtuse self?
