Simple differnce here Greg:
What Clinton did is SOP for a new President changing all hands. (kinda like changing the old Cabinet of the former president)
What GW Bush did was a criminal violation of federal law, (Obstruction Of Justice), & one that so demoralized the Justice Dept that most higher ups quit. (Just ask John Ashcroft how he felt about Bush's attack dogs "Twisting his arm" when he was very sick in the hospital)
Or even ask Senate Republican
Judiciary members Graham, Brownback, Sessions or Arlen Specter if they feel it was the same as what B. Clinton did.....They don't.
BTW, Sen Specter has suffered a recurrence of his cancer.
