While Specter stopped short of answering the question, he did suggest that Gonzales would step down to avoid the embarrassment of such a vote in Congress.

Schieffer: "What leads you, Senator, to the conclusion that he will probably step down before such a vote is taken?"
Specter: "Because of the likelihood of a very substantial vote of no confidence, and I think that if and when he sees that coming that he would prefer to avoid that kind of an historical black mark."
