Presidential prerogative

The Democrats have picked up on what I and other bloggers noted in W's babbling with Brit Hume the other day--his statement that he believed Tom DeLay to be innocent violated the White House's repeated refusal to comment on ongoing investigations. Of course, Scottie the Liar has a non-answer for everything:
"The president was asked a question and he responded to that question in the interview yesterday, and made very clear what his views were," McClellan said. "We don't typically tend to get into discussing legal matters of that nature, but in this instance, the president chose to respond to it. Our policy regarding the Fitzgerald investigation and ongoing legal proceeding is well-known and it remains unchanged."

"Call it a presidential prerogative," he added.
Which surprised me a bit. I figured he would probably say "We don't comment on comments on ongoing investigations."
