"Pessimism of the intellect, optimism of the will." -- Antonio Gramsci "The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness." -- John Kenneth Galbraith "The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts." -- Bertrand Russell

Matt Cooper feels there's a very good chance Bush will not pardon Libby. He sums things up by writing, "Unfortunately for Libby, Bush's not a pardon kind of guy."
We'll see. Bush may dislike pardons, but Libby is a "special" friend candidate. Given his fall-guy status, look for an exception to be made. Loyalty is the golden rule with GW and easily trumps anything having to do with appearances much less the rule of law. Just consider the lengths he's going through for Gonzo.
Bush will likely take the heat and commute the sentence.
