Seattle Post-Intelligencer calls for some integrity over Rove's disclosure

Today's Seattle P-I editorial has this to say about Karl Rove's disclosure of national security secrets to discredit a political opponent.
The president would bring credit to himself and his administration by firing Rove immediately. Whether or not Rove violated the law, his actions on behalf of the administration broke trust with the American people and with the president's own stated view of the matter. Minimally, enough is known that the president must suspend Rove and cease all contacts with Rove until the investigation is complete. Rove, it appears, cannot be trusted with the United States' secrets.

As far as I'm concerned, if President Bush did fire Rove, it couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
