55. Hello? He didn't try to discourage the journalist from outing Plame
What the article says IS:

"said he tried to steer the journalist away from allegations the operative's husband was making about faulty Iraq intelligence."

This is an admission IMO that his *steering away* amounts to his leaking the name of the operative to the reporter to shut Wilson up.

I may be smoking something but I don't see how this is a plus for Rove???
