Scooter Gets Jail
So Scooter Libby gets two and half years in jail and a quarter million dollar fine. About fair enough for purjury and obstruction of justice in the outing of a covert agent.
At this point the speculation is on whether or not Bush pardons Libby. Given the character of this White House, it could go either way. But just to make a prediction, I'm guessing that Bush will pardon Libby, certainly if Libby actually does go to jail. I really suspect that they will ignore the firestorm of criticism to keep Libby out of jail and to make sure that he stays quiet.
