Today's topic: President Bush has issued few pardons compared to his predecessors, especially Bill Clinton. Is he missing an opportunity to correct some wrongs, or is he doing the right thing? Who, if anyone, should Bush pardon that he hasn't yet? I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby? The Border Patrol officers who shot an illegal immigrant? W. James Antle III and Glenn Greenwald discuss Bush's final days in office.
