"To do this we need to step back and look at his revelation in the context of the ongoing investigation into the outing of Valerie Plame. If you do, you can see that what once were a bunch of disparate subplots - the pre-war duplicity, the 2004 election, the Libby indictment, the continuing investigation into Karl Rove - suddenly can be woven together into one grand narrative that makes coherent sense in a way that much of this story didn't before. And the resulting storyline is not a pretty one... We may now know for a fact that Rove and other Bush advisers viewed the truth about the run-up to war as something that could destroy his re-election prospects."

"Listen, I know of nobody - I don't know of anybody in my administration who leaked classified information. If somebody did leak classified information, I'd like to know it, and we'll take the appropriate action. And this investigation is a good thing... Leaks of classified information are a bad thing. And we've had them - there's too much leaking in Washington. That's just the way it is. And we've had leaks out of the administrative branch, had leaks out of the legislative branch, and out of the executive branch and the legislative branch, and I've spoken out consistently against them and I want to know who the leakers are."
-President George W. Bush, Sept. 30, 2003

* Howard Kurtz on the leak coverage. All well worth reading.
* Senate gives up on immigration. Which may not have been enforceable, anyways. What will Bush do?
* Republican budget talks collapse. Oops!
* Bush faces a dissenting voice at one of his propaganda speeches.
* The real story behind the French student protests.
* Ehrlich signs stem cell and air pollution bills.
* Weird. Three ski patrol members die after falling into a volcanic fissure.
