Frankly, I hope she refuses to appear before congress and that they put her in jail, just like NY Times reporter JudithMiller was jailed before she finally testified before Patrick Fitzgerald. Frankly, I don't think she has what it takes to be a martyr. I think she'll show up for Conyers and then, his committee will offer her some form of limited immunity, which will force her to talk. That's when it will get interesting. Will Bush get in the picture and claim his right to shut her up? After ahe was talking to him or his people.

Ahhh. Fantasy is a wonderful thing.
