Poll: Libby indictment hits major nerve

From the Associated Press:
The recent indictment of Vice President Cheney's top aide has struck a nerve with the American public. Four in five, 79 percent, said the indictment of former Cheney aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby on perjury and other charges is important to the nation, according to a poll by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. Pew noted that in September 1998, 65 percent said President Clinton's lies under oath were important. Clinton was impeached over his handling of an affair with Monica Lewinsky, but was acquitted by the Senate on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. […] Most Americans, six in 10, say they do not think the news about Libby's indictment has gotten too much coverage.
Hmmmm... that seems to fly in the face of recent talking points on Fox News, especially "no spin" O'Reilly. On October 28th, O'Reilly claimed that the American public wouldn't care about it by Monday (October 31st). I guess they still care.
