The Most Interesting Guy in Washington?

THE MOST INTERESTING GUY IN WASHINGTON?….The Note tells us that Patrick Fitzgerald has been subpoenaing more people in the Valerie Plame case:

ABC News has learned that one was Susan Ralston, Rove’s long-time right hand. The other, per ABC News’ Jake Tapper, was Israel “Izzy” Hernandez, Rove’s former left hand (and now a top Commerce Department official). It isn’t clear if either had been asked to testify before last week.

….The appearances of Ralston and Hernandez suggests at least part of the focus remains on Rove, although his attorney tells ABC News that he still believes Rove is not a target of the investigation.

Well, he sure sounds like a target to me. I mean, if a federal prosecutor suddenly started subpoenaing all your aides and coworkers, wouldn’t you be a wee bit on the worried side?
