Silence = best chance.

Thanks no doubt to Blawgletter’s advice ("Don’t Call Scooter"), the defense in the I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby perjury and obstruction trial will not call Mr. Libby as a witness, according to news reports.  Nor will they put Mr. Libby’s former boss, Vice President Dick Cheney, on the stand.

Final arguments will likely proceed next Tuesday.

Blawgletter can’t tell from press accounts whether the defense witnesses (almost all journalists) held up under cross-examination.  The stories focus overmuch, in Blawgletter’s view, on the inside baseball of the fourth estate.  So Blawgletter doesn’t know how much of a dent, if any, Mr. Libby’s team put in the prosecution’s case. 

Any help out there?
