A Man with a Mission

I don't know Fitzgerald well. But I can see he is uncomfortable with being cast as some knight on a white horse. He's no such thing. He's much more dangerous.

He's a federal prosecutor who does not want to run for governor or a big job in a top law firm. He's not whispering that he'd like to be made a federal judge. He doesn't want to be somebody's rainmaker.

There's nothing more frightening to the combine than someone without an appetite they can feed.

The Chicago Tribune has a fantastic article on Patrick Fitzgerald, general corruption-buster and special counsel in the Plame investigation. (via Digby)
