This has been a tough week for the Bush administration.

The Democratic-led Congress has held hearings to investigate the dismissal of a group of federal attorneys. It also held hearings to investigate the quality of health care for service members and veterans, after a devastating newspaper series about Walter Reed Army Medical Center. And the Justice Department itself admitted that the FBI overstepped its bounds in demanding information without a court order.

All this in a week when a jury convicted former White House insider Lewis Libby.
