Hillary Clinton on Bush’s commutation of Scooter Libby’s sentence:

Today’s decision is yet another example that this administration simply considers itself above the law. This case arose from the administration’s politicization of national security intelligence and its efforts to punish those who spoke out against its policies… This commutation sends the clear signal that in this administration, cronyism and ideology trump competence and justice.

Yet is there a single news reporter who asked her how this statement would be applied to Sandy Berger if she is elected president?

(Thanks to Michael Reagan and his column for reminding us about Sandy Berger. No thanks to the main stream media, though.)
