The New York Times' "Bush Orders Full Cooperation in Leaking of Name":

"The general view inside the White House among senior staff is that this is going to create a few rocky political days, that it's mainly the Democrats pushing it and that if all the Republicans stay on board, the story goes away," a Republican worker with close ties to the White House said.

Goes away, unless you happen to have worked with Ms. Plame in some not-quite-overt capacity in the past three decades, I guess. But why would that matter?

Update/correction: It seems that Ms. Plame hadn't been with the CIA for a full three decades, most likely. Not relevant, but I'm not going that far in my emulation of right-wing style, to start telling blatant untruths.
