Libby indicted, resigns

As if you didn't know already. I just wanted to see Fitzgerald's press conference before posting it. He came across as a total professional-- I was impressed. And with not one but five counts against ol' Scooter, the ongoing investigation doesn't bode well for Rove.

Mil Apodos sent along a nice little Scooter in jail image for me, but I can't seem to get it uploaded. I'll try again later.

Update: Bush's statement on the resignation was about 90 seconds long, with no questions from the press. He actually praised Libby's work, and of course used the term 'ongoing investigation' (at which point it was clear that there'd be no Q&A) while talking about the need to 'move the country forward.' Standard protocol with negative news. Then quick as a wink, he speed-walked away. The end.
