I wouldn’t want to suggest that anyone who consults a lawyer is therefore guilty — but it is noteworthy when the President of the United States feels compelled to do so.

President Bush has consulted an outside lawyer in case he needs to retain him in the grand jury investigation of who leaked the name of a covert CIA operative last year, the White House said Wednesday.

Darndest thing. That Plame investigation has been pronounced bogus a couple dozen times…but it just doesn’t seem to go away…
