Eric Holder pushes back

Despite fielding questions which addressed his role in Bill Clinton's questionable Marc Rich pardon, Eric Holder, Barack Obama's nominee for Attorney General, not only held his ground, he also admitted the United States practiced torture and affirmed, albeit softly, his commitment to the rule of law (see this but also this).

Alas, Holder might need the strength of Hercules to clean out the Department of Justice once he gets settled because the Bush regime has so thoroughly infested the place with political appointees who refuse to leave and Republican partisans posing as civil servants that it might take a great flood to rid the Department of every one of its GOP hacks.
