I'd prefer to hear the 'news' of Mr. Rove's indictment, if it is ever announced, from Mr. Fitzgerald. Only he can provide the relevant details.
To his credit, I read that Mr. Fitzgerald is a very cautious man. If the indictment can not be upheld in court, it should not be handed down. He should take all the time he needs to make his assessment.
Mr. Rove's move, from policy to upcoming campaign, was very revealing, IMHO. The WH seems to want to distance itself from any possible fallout from an indictment, though success in doing so is unlikely. Mr. Libby's trial is scheduled to take place after the November elections; a Rove indictment, issued at any time between now and 2008, will simply serve to boost the Democrat's chances for regaining seats in both the House and Senate as well as in the upcoming Presidential election.
