I'm probably way late to the party with these, but I have a few quick observations from WaPo's article about the Democrats demanding Rove's head:

1) The intriguing inference (if I'm reading it correctly) that Fitzgerald let Libby off the hook about the actual leakage as the result of a plea agreement, and not because he didn't think he could prove it. Or perhaps he's leaving the "big" charge out there to hold over Libby's head as additional incentive to testify against Rove or Cheney. As if a max of 30 years isn't enough. On the other hand, "traitor" is a hard word to live down.

2) How weird is it that Trent (Vote For Strom!) Lott is trying to be the conscience of the Republican party? When Trent Lott is your party's moral compass, it's a pretty safe bet that you're deep in the wilderness and very, very lost.

3) The longer and tighter Bush clings to Rove's rotting political corpse, the better. Let the stink of corruption & death get rubbed all over him real real good.
