Will Obama's Presidency End Next Week?

Word is percolating up, from the murky recesses of Fox News, that Karl Rove will defy the House Judiciary Committee’s subpoena to testify about the “politicization” of the Justice Department. Apparently, he has said he won’t show up. That’s what happened last May. Then, Bush instructed the Justice Department not to prosecute Rove for contempt or otherwise to enforce the subpoena. Rove was, after all, “Bush’s brain.” To the Bush administration’s crack legal minds, that sorry fact creates a “privilege” that must never be breached.

The same miscreants are still claiming that the privilege exists. All informed commentators agree that, legally, this is nonsense. But, if the recent past is any guide, it’s not out of the question that the “change” President, Mr. Bipartisan, might decide that it’s better “to move on” or “look forward” or whatever the cowardly phrase of the hour now is than to restore the rule of law. If he does, it will mark the day his Presidency died.
