Lowry on Libby
I agree with much of what Rich Lowry has to say on the subject. A snippet:
The Founders created the pardon power to grant relief from a justice system that might, in the words of Alexander Hamilton, be “too sanguinary and cruel.” It doesn’t serve that function so much anymore, but has turned out to be a safety valve in an era when each party criminalizes political disputes when it suits its purposes.
[E]xcept for the most blatant crimes, the political arena is the best forum for politically controversial charges of wrongdoing.
