Ted Olson to be AG?

ABC Legal Correspondent Jan Crawford Greenburg is saying that Ted Olson will be President Bush's replacement for Attorney General Gonzales.

Ted Olson is a former Solicitor General and is seriously unpopular with Democrats. He was confirmed by only 51-47 votes in 2001. Democrats don't like him, in part, because he successfully argued Bush v. Gore, but Greenburg reports that some in the Bush Administration think the Democrats will be able to put that behind them given Olson's job performance as Solicitor General. I'm not convinced.

Incidentally, today is both Olson's birthday and the anniversary of the death of his wife, Barbara Olson, on American Airlines Flight 77.

UPDATE:Drudge says "announcement could be imminent" according to "top sources."
