Could we get an order of indictments with that coffee?

If this doesn't say it all about the White House scheme team. The WaPo tells us in preparation for today's indictment excitement, Libby is shopping for good criminal attorney and Rove is assembling a PR team. Another clue that Rove thinks he has dodged the bullet? A possibility, as the NYT is reporting he won't be indicted but will remain under investigation. Or does he already have a lawyer and just wants to manage the fallout in case he's indicted? Perception management always comes first with this crowd.

In spite of all the leaking defense lawyers and speculation, I don't think even the potential targets of the Fitzquisition know for sure what will happen next. I don't think I've ever seen a more leakproof investigation. Meanwhile, the White House is madly preparing for trouble in the Capitol City.
A Republican consultant with close White House ties said Chief of Staff Andrew H. Card Jr. had canceled at least two trips in the past week and had met with Bush over the weekend to focus on how to react to the grand jury's decisions. "These will be very, very dark days for the White House," the consultant quoted Card as saying.

But that cloud over the White House will brighten the prospects for saving life as we know it, for the rest of the country. I just hope something would happen today. I can stand much more of this suspense. It's going to be a very long morning.

Great post. I'm trying not to get my hopes up on anything just yet. As an AlterNet article mentioned a few days ago, most of the media don't really know anything anyway and have been reduced to publishing rumors and speculation. So I'm going to hold my breath along with the rest of the world hoping for the house of cards to come tumbling down.
