Libby jury deliberating

Insightful diary on dailykos tonight,"Libby Trial: Madness! Madness! Madness!", that gives you a feel for what the inside of the courtroom was like during the closing arguments in the Libby trial. Rest of the coverage today is pretty mundane. The Post has a bit about the jury instructions.

It's remarkable to hear pundits and commentators so easily floating the idea that Libby, if convicted, is likely to be pardoned by Bush in any event, so what is one to do? There's a cavalier attitude that a pardon is virtual conventional wisdom, so hey, Fitzgerald's out of luck if he tries to flip Libby and go after Cheney. Imagine if the President in question were named Clinton.

Just saying...
