DOJ Probes Won't End with Gonzales' Resignation

But it doesn't mean the end of Congressional investigations into the firings of federal prosecutors. Also, difficult confirmation hearings may lie ahead for the president's choice to replace Gonzales. One name that comes up more than others for a replacement is Michael Chertoff.
