A Presidential Pardon for Hillary?

President Obama will be campaigning again for Hillary Clinton today. Clearly, he seeks through her candidacy what would amount to a third term for his agenda of fundamentally transforming America.

What is becoming equally apparent is that for her to do that, Mr. Obama is going to have to use his constitutional power to pardon Mrs. Clinton. Otherwise, a new Clinton administration will be dogged by controversy, scandal and possible prosecution and/or impeachment for its chief executive’s myriad, snowballing illegal activities.

There’s precedent for presidents to pardon individuals prior to any charges being filed against them. And, while a Clinton Justice Department would be no more likely to indict Hillary than has been Obama’s highly politicized one, public sentiment and congressional machinations sometimes make official obstruction and stonewalling unsustainable. Ask Richard Nixon.

The question is: Will voters pardon Hillary before Obama does?
