    Interesting. I must now wonder what other stalling tactics will be used by the white house. I am sure they will come up with something.

    Appeals until Bush is about to leave office then a flurry of pardons, I expect.

    Once again you can not pardon someone that has not even been charged with a crime. But then intelligence and reality seldom ruin your day do they?

    Yes you can, sport.

    A POTUS can pardon them for things that they might be charged with at some guture date.

    You really don't pay attention to these things very closely, do you?

    No they can not. The Pardon only applies to things charged with or convicted of. A president can not pardon people for future crimes. Nor can he pardon them for things that they are not charged with.

    Ohh and he can not pardon himself either.

    But what why are you all worried about November anyway, as I recall Bush is going to stage a Coup and take over as Dictator for life right before or after he invades Iran. Or at least ya all have been saying that for 3 years now.

    It's good to see that the courts are trying to do something.
