SO, HOW ARE BUSH AND TENET GETTING ALONG THESE DAYS?....Elisabeth Bumiller in the New York Times tomorrow today:

Although the leak investigation that is consuming Washington's political class has not, by all accounts, affected the chummy personal ties between the president and the director, it has still taken its toll on Mr. Tenet.

....As the former C.I.A. official summed up Mr. Tenet: "He's not liked by everybody in the administration, but the president loves him."

If this is really true, it's remarkable. The CIA is engaged in thermonuclear bureaucratic war with the White House and has just started a leak investigation that has the potential to lead to jail time for some of George Bush's top aides, and yet Bush and Tenet are still good buddies.

Wow.
