Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he will block the nomination of Ted Olson if the President selects him as Attorney General, Reuters is reporting:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid vowed on Wednesday to block former Solicitor General Theodore Olson from becoming attorney general if President George W. Bush nominates him to replace Alberto Gonzales.
