Nixon had Watergate, the Clintons had Whitewater. This is Leakwater.
Often called Plamegate, Rovegate or the CIA Leak Case, Leakwater is a better name for the White House scandal over the leaking of a CIA operative's name to discredit and intimidate her husband and other White House critics. See also "The Leaker," a John Sherffius cartoon of July 11, 2005, which shows Karl Rove taking a leak on the CIA seal.
What's the President up to now? This smells worse than Leakwater.

(alternate name: Plamegate)
