Among the many facts that we learned from Patrick Fitzgerald's press conference, one of the most dramatic came in response to a question about whether it was "worth keeping Judy Miller in jail for 85 days?": "I would have wished nothing better," Fitzgerald replied, "than, when the subpoenas were issued in August 2004, witnesses testified then. We would have been here in October 2004 instead of October 2005. No one would have [gone] to jail."

Hmmm, October 2004. That was right before November 2004.

Does anyone doubt that if Patrick Fitzgerald had held a press conference announcing five indictments against a key member of the Bush administration just before the last election it would have affected the outcome? Would the two men whose lies Libby was ultimately lying to cover up have been re-elected?

Thanks, Judy.
