    Many pardons are done for political reasons--it's just that when a Dem does it, the issue never goes away.  Bush will not be criticized over this--the media always accepts his ignorance as an excuse.

        ...and their mouthpieces (Limbaugh, Hannity, etc) remember every detail about Marc Rich. And when Eric Holder goes before the Senate Judiciary committee next month you can be sure that the GOoPer hype machine will repeat Marc Rich ad nauseam.

        I for one would be happy for an amendment that removes political donors from the ranks of the pardonable to save it for people who have suffered true miscarriages of justice.
