High Standards

No, really -- I'm relieved to know that if someone is convicted of a crime and goes to jail, they won't be working in the White House anymore. I honestly didn't expect it from an administration that seems to model itself on Richard Nixon's.

What's really interesting is that CNN pointed out that this, in fact, differs from "I will fire someone who is found to be responsible." Yet, I wonder -- how does it "seem" to differ?

Maybe it's just that the media is still getting used to this whole "having a spine" thing.
