How Low Can He Go?

With the baldly political act of keeping Scooter Libby from prison time — the kind of thing you normally see in the final days of a presidency, when there are no more elections one can affect — it looks like Bush is shooting for Nixon’s 23 percent national polling record after all. Soft on crime, indeed.

Meanwhile, lots of good pardon/clemency background info is here. Roger C. Adams should be expecting a busy Fourth of July, I suspect.

UPDATE: Or maybe Adams is purely superfluous; Bush made the Libby decision without even consulting the Justice Department.
