Dean Sees Dirty Harriet
Howard Dean is apparently observing a very different nomination process than we are and it sounds like a lot more fun. Tonight on "Hardball," the demonstrative DNC chair responded to Chris Matthews's question about the Republicans' reluctance to let the Senate review Harriet Miers's White House counsel papers:
MATTHEWS: Do you believe that the president can claim executive privilege?Whatever it's called indeed. We feel it's high time someone played "hide the salami" with Harriet, but we don't think it should be Bush.
DEAN: Well, certainly the president can claim executive privilege. But in the this case, I think with a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, you can't play, you know, hide the salami, or whatever it's called.
