"President Bush reversed himself this morning ..."
Think it's time to pull those flip-flop ads now?
Rice to Give Sworn Public Testimony (washingtonpost.com):
White House counsel Alberto R. Gonzales made the offer this morning in a two-page letter to Kean and Hamilton. 'The Commission must agree in writing that it will not request additional public testimony from any White House official, including Dr. Rice,' Gonzales wrote.Surprised he didn't ask them to promise to brush their teeth and eat their veggies in writing either. Clearly the Rovians are upset.
Gonzales also said the commission 'must agree in writing that Dr. Rice's testimony does not set any precedent for future commission requests.'
This is probably a good thing. Rice always looks shifty and evasive under the easy questioning the Sunday news shows give her -- her voice always rises into this little-girl begging whine that is so unappealing. But I'm certain she will lie under testimony as cheerfully as anyone else in this administration if ordered to do so.
