To the editor:In answer to Tony Mauro’s question, “ Is Ted Olson Too Partisan to Run Justice?” (Sept. 17, Page 12), I say no. When I was a young labor lawyer sitting on a chair against the wall while the chief negotiators sat at the table, I learned, when dealing with certain people, never to give something away without getting something back. Ted Olson was the obvious choice for attorney general, even though the Republican Party is fortunate to have a number of other qualified individuals. Never, never, never, if I were advising the president, would I agree to give up a superstar like Ted and get nothing in return. Deal or no deal, what the White House got in return was instant opposition unless certain presidential papers were handed over and no quick confirmation.
