Will Bush punish himself?
When the Plamegate affair broke, Bush promised to fire anyone who was involved in leaking classified material. Later he backed off that statement, declaring that only a "crime" was worthy of punishment. Everyone assumed that this flip-flop was meant to protect Karl Rove, who was under increasing scrutiny.
However, today the story broke that Bush and Cheney themselves had authorized the leak of classified material. So maybe Bush's flip-flop was to protect HIMSELF.
So the real question is, will Bush now punish himself?
