The Concluder

Apparently the President is not only the decider, but also the concluder:
"I respect the jury's verdict," Bush said in a statement. "But I have concluded that the prison sentence given to Mr. Libby is excessive. Therefore, I am commuting the portion of Mr. Libby's sentence that required him to spend thirty months in prison."

The whole mess here. Apparently the he's trying to see if he can get an approval rating that's any lower than what he has now.
