  •  No, it's not clear (4.00)
    If Abu G is tied to Plame, it will become a bigger circus than the Thomas hearings. It will provide the Dems an opportunity to bring up precisely the issues that the GOP is not allowing them to bring up elsewhere. And it will serve to spotlight, rather than diminish, the Plame thing.

    Further, there are already GOPers quietly doubting Rove. If they've got real doubts on this thing, they're much less likely to confirm Abu G.

    •  A big reason why Gonzales will not be nominated (none)
      and Bush could easily explain it to his "old friend." They don't want exposure on Rovegate.

    •  A great point (none)
      that hadn't crossed my mind. You just might have nailed it. If so, it would, of course, be exactly the type of jujitsu tactics we have come to admire and expect from Senator Reid.

    •  So, Harry Reid is pulling a "don't throw (none)
      AGAG* into the briar patch" on BushCo?

      *Atty. Gen. Alberto Gonzales, aka "A Gag" on truth, information, the Constitution, international law, etc.  Also, should cause a reflexive gag response from all Senate Dems. Don't swallow, Dems, he's poison!
