The showdown is beginning between the Congress and the administration over these U.S. Attorney firings. Soon they Democrats say they will actually issue subpoenas to White House officials. The president will claim executive privilege and it will be thrown into the courts. All over nothing. So far, there is absolutely no charge that anything illegal took place. There is no crime in firing U.S. Attorneys for political reasons. These are political jobs. Maybe what President Bush should have done was fire all 93 like Bill Clinton did. Then nobody would have noticed.

This really has nothing to do with the U.S. Attorneys. It's all about the Democrats #1 agenda: embarrassing the White House and diverting attention from their empty agenda. Really..what have Democrats done since taking over Capitol Hill in January? Does anybody remember any landmark legislation from their first 100 days? Raising the minimum wage, well there was that. Yawn.

So now the White House says if the House issues subpoenas for Karl Rove and Harriet Miers, the deal of being able to meet with them both in private is off. Still, there are signs Democrats may be backing down, just a bit. John Conyers and Chuck Schumer say they are continuing to negotiate with the administration. Is this because they know their subpoenas won't hold up in court? Perhaps.

This is just like the Valerie Plame non-affair. A lengthy, expensive investigation into...nothing. Welcome to the Democratic Washington.
