"Legal work that wouldn't cut it in any law firm in the country - and those types of memos wouldn't - shouldn't be a stepping stone to the post of White House counsel, let alone to the post of US Attorney General. If a first year associate wrote memos as sloppy as Gonzales did, that lawyer's career advancement would be threatened."
