Olbermann with more on the CIA leak

Olbermann delves into the Libby trial developments from Tuesday with David Shuster...some interesting tidbits here, including Cheney allegedly instructing Scott McLellan to go out and lie about Libby's involvement in the leak. And keep in mind that Cheney's response to reports of his involvement in the leak is likely what has been reported before, that Bush had declassified some intelligence in order to refute Joe Wilson's report that the Nigerian "yellow cake" was bunk. Needless to say, this does not help Libby on the charges he faces nor Cheney if he's implicated in any obstruction schemes.

Also on the clip, Keith briefly interviews Hillary Clinton on Iran. Hillary seems newly unleashed in the ferocity of her critiques of Bush. The race is clearly on.
