(CNN) - Talking to a Twin Cities radio station Monday, likely Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson said Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' resignation is a product of mismangement, not wrongdoing.
"I wish him all the best. Clearly things weren't going the way they should've been going over there from a handling standpoint for some time," Thompson told KSTP's Bob Davis. "But Gonzales' enemies were making him look pretty good. They were piling on him, and they were making more out of it than there was."
Davis asked Thompson if Gonzales could be accused of any wrongdoing.
"No, no," Thompson responded. "I think it was mishandled. But he doesn't have a monopoly on that in Washington.”
