Doug Jones as AG?


This seems like a good idea to me:

Alabama Sen. Doug Jones is the leading contender to be nominated for attorney general by President-elect Joe Biden, three sources familiar with the discussions tell NBC News.

Biden is also considering Judge Merrick Garland of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, who was denied a seat on the Supreme Court in 2016 by a Republican-led Senate, and Sally Yates, a former deputy attorney general, sources said.

Jones will be leaving the Senate in January after his bid for re-election failed. He would become the second Alabama senator nominated for attorney general in four years; he was elected to fill the Senate seat once held by the other — Republican Jeff Sessions.

Yates would also be a reasonable choice. Nominating Garland without knowing he can be replaced, on the other hand, would be extremely stupid.

Still, I think this is a dispositive case:

If he’s a bad choice by the standards by which Bill Barr was allegedly good, sounds great to me. And also this:
