You Can’t Always Veep Who You Want

Conservative columnist Robert Novak has reported that John McCain wants to make Joe Lieberman his running mate, but knows that he can’t for political reasons.

Novak and Armitage Trade Accusations Over Leak

Columnist Robert Novak and former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage can’t agree on what Armitage’s intentions were when he told Novak about Valerie Plame’s employment by the CIA. Novak claims it was a deliberate leak; Armitage says it was much more casual.

  • As a DailyKos poster points out, however, this is the fourth time that Novak has changed his tune on this.

He said that this occurred only after another administration official first supplied him with the info.
    This is not a huge deal, relatively speaking, but certainly of interest to Plamegate junkies….
