DOJ criminal division needs a new top prosecutor
As detailed in this official press release, the head of the criminal division of the DOJ has announced her resignation: "Today, the Department of Justice announced that Assistant Attorney General of the Criminal Division Alice S. Fisher will end her current service to the Department on May 23, 2008."
Since a new administration is likely to bring in new people in 2009, a replacement for AAG Fisher will not have a long shelf-life. Still, President Bush might try to fill this important position, and I am sure he will read the comments of this blog if any readers have thoughtful candidates to propose.

Orin, I'm blushing... (and I think too smart to even want this position as this moment in time).

Well, I nominate Orin Kerr, of Illinois or the District, or wherever he is these days.
Seriously, that had been my plan even before I clicked on the comments.
