How The Mighty Have Fallen

Poor Alberto Gonzales. The former Attorney General is finding out that life in Washington, D.C. can be cruel, much like the interrogation methods he ordered.

Alberto R. Gonzales, like many others recently unemployed, has discovered how difficult it can be to find a new job. Mr. Gonzales, the former attorney general, who was forced to resign last year, has been unable to interest law firms in adding his name to their roster, Washington lawyers and his associates said in recent interviews.

He has, through friends, put out inquiries, they said, and has not found any takers. What makes Mr. Gonzales’s case extraordinary is that former attorneys general, the government’s chief lawyer, are typically highly sought.

As former President Harry Truman once said, "If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog."
