Josh Marshall is of the opinion that it was the Republicans who leaked the Berger scandellette, rather than the leak being a pre-emptive one by the Dems.

I'm not quite convinced.

Clearly the multiple leaks/multiple talking points strategy has a Rovian stench, but considering how long the investigation has been going on, all that could have been scripted months ago.

The fact of the matter is that the Berger brouhaha has already been buried under coverage of the 9/11 report -- look at Google News' US front page, for instance. Poultry abuse is getting more play than Sandy Berger.

Given how much effort must have been put into creating the anti-Berger campaign, that has to be disappointing for the Pubs. If the leak was pre-emptive, I'd say it's worked brilliantly so far.
