Get Cheney?
Here's one expert on Plamegate who thinks Fitzgerald is still after Cheney.

If anyone has a good guess, it's Marcy Wheeler.

Update: My my. This quote from Fitzgerald's jury summation would certainly support Wheeler's assertion:
"There is a cloud over the vice president . . . And that cloud remains because this defendant obstructed justice," Fitzgerald said.

"There is a cloud over the White House. Don't you think the FBI and the grand jury and the American people are entitled to straight answers?" Fitzgerald asked the jury.
Fitzgerald put his entire summation in the plural "they", not "him", leaving no doubt that he's concluded that Cheney's behind the whole thing, but that Libby's lying to shield the Vice President.

Ooooo la la ..... If convicted, and if given a long sentence by the judge who is known for stiff sentences, will Libby deal? Or, more likely, has the deal already been made that Bush will free him?
