Someone ought to sue Rather. Not Bush, but Staudt. He'd have a pretty good case, I think. I'm a lawyer, so I have a little insight on this. Staudt is not a public figure. The only two problems he's got are these: What are his damages, and can he live long enought to take it to trial?
I sincerely hope that Staudt files a whopping suit, and does not settle for a mere apology, as Gen. Westmoreland did.

Wouldn't the Killian's and Hodge's have cause for action? I would think so since cBS has caused defamation of their characters by using faked and forged documents.
Whether it went to trial or not, just getting Rather, his producer, CBS brass and some DNC people under oath might be worth it.
