The Pardon Problema

The Pardon Libby train is picking up speed. It left the station at NRO and has made stops at FOX News, The Wall Street Journal, The NY Post and now a juror from the trial has jumped on. But as Ezra Klein and Carpetbagger point out, pardoning Scooter is not without its drawbacks for the administration because it would once again make it the focus of the scandal. Indeed, one of the prime reasons why Libby was picked to fall on his sword was to protect his bosses from the fallout.

Scooter is probably thinking a draft of his pardon is in the works. Something tells me he'll be in a for a long wait.
