Speaking of Bush’s legacy, not to pardon Scooter Libby before he begins his prison term would leave an indelible black stain on his Presidency. He has said that he was “pretty much going to stay out of it” until the appeals have run their course and that he feels “terrible” for the Libby family. Well, that’s not good enough, Mr. President. This is almost as egregious case of prosecutorial abuse as the Duke lacrosse team “rape” case, and maybe even a bigger injustice to a loyal public servant who is essentially being imprisoned for a discrepancy of memory with a journalist by a prosecutor who failed to even get an indictment for the alleged underlying crime.
