Scooter Libby

I'm not going to pretend to know whether or not this man is guilty. A reporter did go to jail to protect him, and as fishy as that sounds it cannot be admitted as evidence to determine guilt or innocence.
Its usually Democrats and liberals who are calling for the Rove to be fired and Bush to be impeached. Conservatives and Republicans say that it is no big deal. We are now living in a country in which a politician's guilt or innocence is determined more by ideology than by whether or not he committed the deed.
If it were Bush who had slept with an intern, would we be hearing how he took advantage of a young woman, lied to his wife, and lied to us?
People are going to vote their preference regardless of scandal. Nixon got relected in a landslide even after the Watergate story broke.
