[Howard] Dean was asked Sunday by ABC "This Week" host George Stephanopoulos: "If [Fitzgerald] finishes his investigation without bringing indictments and without issuing a final report, will you accept that as the end of the matter?"
"No," Dean shot back. "Because I fundamentally don't think these are honest people running the government."
And you know what, if there aren't any indictments, I will be suspicious, because we already know that Libby perjured his testimony in front of the grand jury to cover for Dick Cheney. And why might it be worse for him to admit that he found out about Plame through Cheney than through a reporter, one might ask? If Cheney, et al, were seeking to find out everything they could to launch a smear campaign on Joe Wilson, that's why. As Howard Dean said, "I fundamentally don't think these are honest people running the government." I hope that Democrats continue to say that throughout 2006.
