I must apologize to the Bush administration.
Any regular reader of this blog recognizes that I'm not an administration fan. However, in commuting Libby's sentence ( it was absolutely NOT a pardon) the President did the right thing. The special prosecutor thing outlived its usefulness a long time ago. Neither Democrats or Republicans should call for it again unless there is very real tangible evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors. The Nixon administration or worse.
No bj's from young women, no leaking names for political gain, etc. etc. Selling military secrets to Al Queida is more like the minimum standard.
The judge sentenced the guy for a longer term than a typical drug dealer. For what? Try to figure out what the real crime was.
I feared that this lame duck administration would through Libby directly in front of the train. Good to see they have some resolve left.
