From the NYT, courtesy of Sullivan:
Mr. Fitzgerald was spotted Friday morning outside the office of James Sharp, Mr. Bush's personal lawyer. Mr. Bush was interviewed about the case by Mr. Fitzgerald last year. It is not known what discussions, if any, were taking place between the prosecutor and Mr. Sharp. Mr. Sharp did not return a phone call, and Mr. Fitzgerald's spokesman, Randall Samborn, declined to comment.

For all the scorn and hatred the Republicans directed towards the French in the lead up to the war, there is one aspect of the French governmental system of which I'm sure they are very jealous. It is against the law in France for criminal charges to be brought against a sitting President. Jacques Chirac has in fact been using this law to shield himself from prosecution in a bribery and corruption case dating from when he was the Mayor of Paris. However, there is no such law on the books here.
Dare we to dream?
