      Obama has handed out fewer pardons than any President I can recall.  Some reporter wrote a brief article about that the other day.  He has been bending over backward to avoid even more controversy and vitriol than he has already drawn.  Makes me wonder if that is the reason, or if he is just more "Law & Order" than he appeared to be in his campaign material.

      The second thing is, now that he is a lame duck President and will have no more need to negotiate or be nice to his opponents, if at the last minute, he will hand out a whole bunch of pardons.  

      Roger Shuler got himself banned for CT and being annoying, but give this to him, he was a bulldog when it came to staying after the Bush era US Attorneys.  A lot of the stuff Roger got blamed for CT wasn't.  It was real because I know some of the back story on those cases Roger wrote about. It just seemed like CT because Alabama and Mississippi legal politics is so bizarre as to be unbelievable to somebody who never experienced it.

      One of my attorney friends in Mississippi said the prosecutions of Dickie Scruggs, Paul Minor and Don Siegelman had Karl Rove's fingerprints all over them. That was back when the cases just started. I know every one of the key players in that soap opera personally, except for Don Siegelman.

      Let's keep our fingers crossed that before he leaves office, Obama does the right thing for everyone who was targeted by Rove & Company.
