The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, 9/19/7

Asked about President Bush’s nominee for new attorney general, Northeast Mississippi attorneys don’t seem to know anything about the 66-year-old former federal judge.

Yet, it seems, Democrats and Republicans appreciate the career of Michael Mukasey, who has been tapped as the successor to Alberto Gonzales..

Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., said, “The president needs a good leader to guide the Department of Justice through the remainder of his term in office. Judge Michael Mukasey will bring to the position of attorney general a lifetime of experience from the judicial branch as well as the private legal sector.”
