"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

Rollover Rover?,12271,759893,00.html

An audio report from Julian Borger for Guardian Unlimited states regarding the source of the Plame leak that "...several of the journalists are saying privately 'yes, it was Karl Rove who I talked to.' Now, the thing is that the journalists are not going to name Karl Rove publicly because you don't name your sources and to do so would discredit them as journalists so the White House is safe for the time being but Karl Rove's name is very much out there."

Further, Paul Hogan reminded me of another pesky detail: it is a felony to have knowledge of a felony and not report it. In fact, it is considered aiding and abetting. So, we ask again: What does Bush know, and if he indeed knows who did this, how long has he known it? Who else in this administration knows the identity of the leaker? And, have these individuals also committed a crime by refusing to come forward and report the felonious official?

About Nation-Building

Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
