    I agree that the apropos-ness of Dean's characterization is very delicious, but I do not think he used it becuase he knew about the event. Burr's name was invoked because he personifies "traitor," and if Cheney really released Scooter to bandy Plame's name around, that would, in Dean's mind, constitute traitorousness. That Burr also happened to kill someone in a duel is an interesting parallel, but I think just a happy coincidence.

    This signature line confers blanket acknowledgment and correction of any tpyo's that may or may not exist in the above text.

      Burr could aim.

      is probably immaterial. News of the shooting was released after the Sunday talk shows. Can you imagine what went thru Cheney and companies minds hearing him compared to Burr the day after his unannounced hunting accident? They gave up all thought of cover up thinking Dean had inside information.(Maybe he did). They are still sputtering making excuses for their half-day+ delay in releasing this to the press.
