The Libby List
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Jury selection began today for the trial of Lewis "Scooter" Libby, former top aide to Vice President Dick Cheney. Among the possible questions posed, potential jurors are being asked if they know any of the 80 individuals on the list of potential witnesses, and if so, whether they have opinions that might affect their impartiality.

Among the Washington insiders who may testify: White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove, Time Magazine reporter Matthew Cooper, NBC anchor Tim Russert, Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former CIA director George Tenet, and Joseph and Valerie Plame Wilson.

What are jurors being asked and who might testify? CNN has posted online the 38 proposed jury questions (PDF) as well as a list of high-profile witnesses (PDF) that may be called during the course of the trial.
