Q Scott, did the President talk to Karl Rove two years ago about the leak?I love Helen's last statement - Of course, these folks are half way down the road to hell in a handbasket, yet they still refuse to answer many salient questions. Goes to state of mind of the W, Rove and Co if you ask me.

MR. McCLELLAN: As you have known for sometime now, we've been saying that while this is an ongoing investigation what we're going to do from the White House is cooperate fully with that investigation and let the special prosecutor do his work. We're not going to speculate or prejudge the outcome.

MR. McCLELLAN: And I've already answered that.
