But if the New York Times is correct, the two may be crying in their chardonnay on Friday. The Times is reporting that "Scooter" Libby is going to get a perjury charge laid on him on Friday, and Rove won't be charged at all, though the investigation may stay open on him for a while longer.
The Washington Post is also reporting that Libby has been shopping for a White Collar defense attorney, and that Rove has been working on both criminal and political defense teams just in case.
While the left will try and make hay of a Libby Indictment, lets face it they will be horribly disappointed, probably dejected, if Rove doesn't get charged. To the left Karl Rove is evil incarnate, period. If something bad doesn't happen to him, it will hurt them terribly, hell, they may start claiming that he stole the investigation. A Rove non-indictment will be as bad to them as the 2000 and 2004 elections, because in their minds he is the administration.
While the press is totally consumed with the administration angle to this, I'm wondering if there won't be charges against some in the press in the matter. Cooper, Miller and Novak are all still out there, and apparently as involved as anyone inside the administration in getting Plame's name out there.
