Via Atrios, via Kevin Drum (mmmm... taste the bloggy self reference) Editor and Publisher takes a look at the public's response to the Plame leak scandal and... remember those folks who said no one will care? Wrong:

Plamegate: 86% important 12% not important
Clinton-Lewinsky: 62% important, 37% not important
Whitewater: 49% important, 45% not important
Iran-Contra: 81% important, 19% not important
Watergate: 78% important, 22% not important

Wow. Didn't expect that. Clearly this has a lot to do with why Bush registered his deliciously low 35% approval rating. Damn it feels good to be a lefty.
