Pardon Me

Think you've seen all the damage to America George W. Bush can do? Remember the wisdom of Yogi Berra: "It ain't over 'til it's over."

Constitutionally, neither Congress nor the courts can prevent President Bush from signing such a pardon. It would, however, be the first preemptive pardon in U.S. history for war crimes. And because of his own possible criminal role in approving the torture program, Bush effectively would be granting a self-pardon -- something Nixon seriously considered but no president has ever done. As he ponders his historical legacy, Bush might just decide that this is a pardon better left unsigned.
Worst. President. Ever.

You got that wrong. Bill Clinton was the worst. Remember he was impeached.
