The President Has Springed A Leak

Today's bombshell is that Scooter Libby says that Dick Cheney told him the President gave the green light to discuss classified information in the Valerie Plame affair. Taken on its face, that would make the President the source of the leak. Which brings up the mattter if it's even possible for a President to leak anything, since he is, afeter all, the head of state. That's a whole 'nother discussion that people much smarter than me will debate in the coming days. Instead I would just like to be on the record with the following prediction:

Dick Cheney lied to Scooter Libby. The President didn't authorize anything. Cheney, drunk with power and feeling he's in charge anyways, just blurted that part out because Libby was having some doubts on whether or not it was kosher to do what they were going to do.

That means the President would be off the hook, and Dick Cheney is toast.
