Gonzales resigns: Dodd reaction

WASHINGTON (CNN) - White House hopeful Chris Dodd is out with a statement reacting to the resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales Monday.

"Mr. Gonzales' Justice Department became a political wing of the Bush Administration and his resignation is long overdue. I will only vote to confirm a nominee for Attorney General who is truly independent and who will guarantee reforms that restore and uphold the Constitution."

    Dodd is obviously a little annoyed the Gonzales resignation has overshadowed the Democrats staged break-in of his Hartford office in order to frame the national GOP, on the 35th year of anniversary of Watergate.

    I would imagine Chris Dodd is more than a little annoyed his scheme to frame the national GOP by breaking into his own office is now overshadowed by the Gonzales resignation.
