Report: Neither Thompson or Giuliani Want Attorney General Job

It's all but certain Attorney General John Ashcroft will resign. Two of the top replacement possibilities, former Deputy Attorney General Larry Thompson, who reportedly recently accepted a job with Texaco, and Rudy Guliani have said they don't want the job.

Who's left? Possibly White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales. Or Marc Racicot, Bush's campaign manager and former Governor of Montana.

Bush said Friday he won't be asking for mass resignation letters from his cabinet as has been the custom of past presidents. His view: If it ain't broke, don't fix it. His re-election tells him he's doing something right.

Nonetheless, Ashcroft, Tom Ridge and Colin Powell are expected to resign.
