The thing that kills me about Specter is that he fools you with his tough rhetoric and lawyerly questioning, but in the end, he toes the party line, not the line of what is right.
Rough transcript:
Specter: I assume you are well-prepared for this hearing...
Gonzales: I prepare for every hearing, sir.
Specter: WELL DO YOU PREPARE FOR YOUR PRESS CONFERENCES, LIKE THE ONE WHERE YOU SAID YOU HAD NO INVOLVEMENT?
I bet Gonzales took a big gulp with that one.
