How damaging will his pardon be to Republicans? It killed Ford.

And if not pardoned who will he take down with him?

Something tells me that Fitz wouldn't be amused if they sent him off to Club Fed. Let's face it; prison is still prison, but how much time could he get off if he sang?

Better question, how quickly would his time in this plane of existence come to an end if he even THOUGHT about singing? It's one thing to be a fall guy for somebody; it's another thing to lose years off your life and do time for them, even if you have a big pay-off coming at the end of the line.

Patrick Fitzgerald is a dogged prosecutor, make no mistake about it. I don't know who his next Washington target will be, but his office here should be ramping up to take Conrad Black off to the stripey hole next, shouldn't they?
