How will they get Rove off?

How will they get Rove off? Rove was one of the leakers. It will turn out he was the second one. Since you can't leak a name that has already been leaked, Rove will be off the hook. That will also take care of any possible perjury problem. The Michael Isikoff article contains the hint:

"It is unclear, however, what passed between Cooper and Rove."

It will turn out that they were talking about a leak that had already occurred. That's why Rove could afford to give a waiver. The way that Time is playing this - fighting like crazy on 'principle' and then suddenly giving up - is suspicious. Watch out for a trick to protect Rove.
