    The reason we have a pardon power, however, is because it allows for the society as a whole to correct flaws in the administration of justice. Seems to me that a president would take the administration of justice very seriously.

    And secondly, the pardon is the way we uphold the value of mercy. And yes, mercy is an important value worth upholding, making for kinder society.
