Umm, Duh?

Aah, if only the current republican party had the class of '73, oops I had forgotten history. He was charged and pleaded no lo contendre before resigning. Contingency Plan -- Oct. 24, 2005 -- Page 1: "Karl Rove has a plan, as always. Even before testifying last week for the fourth time before a grand jury probing the leak of CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity, Bush senior adviser Rove and others at the White House had concluded that if indicted he would immediately resign or possibly go on unpaid leave, several legal and Administration sources familiar with the thinking told TIME.

Resignation is the much more likely scenario, they say. The same would apply to I. Lewis (Scooter) Libby, the Vice President's chief of staff, who also faces a possible indictment. A former White House official says Rove's break with Bush would have to be clean—no 'giving advice from the sidelines'—for the sake of the Administration."
It should be for the sake of the country, shouldn't it? And what is it about that office that seems to get people into trouble?
