Infovis: Bush vs. Clinton protocols

doj_wh_charts.gifGonzales' testimony before Congress yesterday was entertaining for me. It produced this sort of language in today's New York Times Editorial:

Mr. Gonzales came across as a dull-witted apparatchik incapable of running one of the most important departments in the executive branch... He delegated responsibility for purging their ranks to an inexperienced and incompetent assistant who, if that’s possible, was even more of a plodding apparatchik.

I do enjoy my Russian political references. War czar, anyone?

Gonzales' testimony also helped produce this infographic by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I. (reported by Slate) that compares protocols in the Clinton and Bush White House for who is allowed to talk to whom in the DoJ about ongoing criminal investigations. See if you can spot the difference.
