Pardons, part 2

This time, unlike last time, the media is interested in discussing the pardon issue. I'm not sure why - maybe because rightwingers are now coming out full force to subvert democracy, or because it's a lot closer to happening now?

Democrats should take the same tactic as last time - demanding Bush say what he'll do. Even better, they should demand the Republican candidates say whether it would be appropriate to pardon Libby.

Probably a good chance for the non-Hillary candidates to push an issue that's awkward for her, given that Bill's pardon for his half-brother stank, and his pardon of Marc Rich was fishy. Hillary might want to decide whether to distance herself from the less-savory aspects of the Clinton administration.
