Turdblossom in panic mode

Herr Rove is rushing back to Fitzgerald's grand jury, apparently in a hopefully futile attempt to keep his criminal behind out of jail. Lawrence O'Donnell at the Huffington Post explains:
What this means is Rove's lawyer, Bob Luskin, believes his client is defintely going to be indicted.
So, Luskin is sending Rove back into the grand jury to try to get around the prosecutor and sell his innocence directly to the grand jurors. Legal defense work doesn't get more desperate than this. The prosecutor is happy to let Rove go under oath again--without his lawyer in the room--and try to wiggle out of the case. The prosecutor has every right to expect that Rove's final under-oath grilling will either add a count or two to the indictment or force Rove to flip and testify against someone else.
O'Donnell's prediction:
At least three high level Bush Administration personnel indicted and possibly one or more very high level unindicted co-conspirators.
Billmon explains:
Considering how high the presumed "high level" personnel sit in the White House pecking order, I can think of very few who would qualify for the honor of being "very high level unindicted co-conspirators." Only two, in fact.

Which means this could end up being a bigger bombshell than I would have expected in even my wildest dreams.
Cue the Beach Boys--"Wouldn't it be nice..."
