I had my own guesses about the identity of Deep Throat, the source that helped bring down a president. Bob Woodward has always said he won't reveal Deep Throat's identity until the source dies. Well, he was recently heard telling people at the Post that DT is very ill. Which has led some to an incredible supposition on the source's identity - Chief Justice William Rehnquist, who both served in the Nixon administration and is quite seriously ill. D Magazine has some good evidence to back up the claim. Could you imagine? Now that's a great political story, and if true, some credit has to be given to Woodward, Bernstein and Ben Bradlee for keeping it secret so many years, given Rehnquist's current position of power. --------
