Political Wire: In Connecticut, Rowland May Leave Office: "Connecticut Republican insiders believe Gov. John Rowland (R) 'is slowly realizing the weight of evidence against him mounting in the House impeachment panel and an active federal investigation,' the Connecticut Post reports."

Also, the beautiful thing about impeachment trials, is there's no appeal. Look at Andrew Johnson: there's no way he had committed "high crimes and misdemeanors" and yet he escaped by one vote. Rowland is not popular in the state, and he's created way too good an opportunity for the Democrats to pass up. You may remember that I called for him to resign when this whole thing began. Now it's too late, and he's dragged the party down with him. It just goes to show you, If you're going to go ugly anyway, go ugly early.
