So, let’s say that the Bush administration intends to fight Rove and Miers’ Congressional subpoenas all the way up to the Supreme Court.

Wouldn’t it be rich if they simultaneously ensured that:

A) No presidential aide could ever be subpoenaed to testify against their will, and:

B) The Republicans don’t get the chance to benefit from this precedent again for the next 20-30 years?

    But, but Clinton…
    What you really need to look at is Nixon. The people who learned the best tricks and from the mistakes of Nixon. Cheney. Rove.

    1) CLASSIFY EVERYTHING
    2) Everything not classified don’t write it down if possible.
    3) Keep your self 2 step removed from the real dirty work. Insert fall guy
    4) When in doubt change the laws
    5) Use National security claim over things that aren’t national security. Fight everything under the general principle that if ‘they” get their nose in the tent it’s all over.

    The thing is, I think they got so arrogant and started to feel so invincible, that they weren’t as careful about 1-3 as they should have been. Because they thought Congress would stay Republican forever.

    But it didn’t. Which is *also* their fault.
