Maybe it's just the crowd I hang out with, but almost every conversation now starts with: "Is there any news, yet?" News of the indictments special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald will hand down related to the Valerie Plame leak scandal, that is. Sure, there's a Supreme Court nominee, a world series, a hurricane--but everyone's talking Rove. So I thought I'd throw it out to you all. Who's going to get indicted and for what? Will Big Time go down? Is this the next Watergate or Whitewater?
Just for the record, I think Karl Rove and Scooter Libby are a lock. I'm going to throw Ari Fleischer into the mix because I like a dark horse. Rove and Libby on perjury and obstruction of justice charges, Fleischer on perjury.
