Of course, the upside if she DOES get turfed, is that it will free her up to run against Obama as a Presdential contender in 2012.

i see too may stories of people dieing mysteriously when sensitive info is about to be disclosed. if it is really important/sensitive info there always seems to be a mysterious accident/small plane crash/burglary preventing someone disclosing the sensitive info, or they would just shut Wikileaks down.

US warns Wikileaks' Assange on possible leak
The US has written to the founder of whistle-blower site Wikileaks, Julian Assange, requesting him not to release a cache of diplomatic files.
The release of classified State Department documents is against US law and will put "countless" lives at risk, the letter warns.
Wikileaks says it is set to unveil a new set of documents, bigger than past releases on Afghanistan and Iraq.
Mr Assange has said the US authorities are afraid of being held to account.
The latest leak is expected to include documents covering US dealings and diplomats' confidential views of countries including Australia, Britain, Canada, Israel, Russia and Turkey.
WikiLeaks accused of violating US law
The United States has rejected talks with WikiLeaks over its planned release of confidential US documents, saying the whistleblower website is holding them in violation of US law.
The US State Department set out its position in a letter to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and his attorney that was released to the media.
"We will not engage in a negotiation regarding the further release or dissemination of illegally obtained US government classified materials," State Department legal adviser Harold Koh wrote.
"As you know, if any of the materials you intend to publish were provided by any government officials, or any intermediary without proper authorisation, they were provided in violation of US law and without regard for the grave consequences of this action.
"As long as WikiLeaks holds such material, the violation of the law is ongoing."
