Ashcroft: Bush "endorsed overwhelmingly by the American people"
Advertisements [?],2933,145646,00.html

WASHINGTON Retiring Attorney General John Ashcroft (search), the one-time senator from Missouri, said he thinks some of his former colleagues are on the wrong track when it comes to creating roadblocks to the confirmation of his would-be successor, former White House counsel Alberto Gonzales (search).

"I've sat on both sides of that table in the Senate. I went through a difficult confirmation proceeding of my own," Ashcroft told FOX News on Thursday in one of his last media interviews before retiring from the post.

"But I'm not going to advise the Senate Democrats on politics. I'm delighted that the president's understanding of politics has been endorsed overwhelmingly by the American people and whether they want to learn from that or not, is up to them," he said.

Ashcroft also praised the president's steady hand in the long-term fight against terrorism. "I met with the president this morning. I intend to meet with him tomorrow morning. I met with him yesterday morning. Every morning he assesses what it is we can do to win another day in the War on Terror," he said. "It's the kind of effort that you can only win one day at a time."
