It doesn’t look good for Karl Rove

From John Dean, Counsel to the President during Watergate. He told Nixon, “there is a cancer on the presidency.”

Only the special counsel, Patrick Fitzgerald, and his staff have all the facts on their investigation at this point, but there is increasing evidence that Rove (and others) may have violated one or more federal laws.

As Rove goes down (and he will and richly deserves it too), let’s not lose sight of one important fact. If Kerry was in the White House, things would have gone much the same. A blundering war gone very bad. Lies and deceit to cover it up. Don’t let the partisan attacks fool you. The Democratic leadership wants this war just as much as Bush, and like Bush, would have (and have!) done whatever was needed to continue the war.
