    Why are we still talking about pardons when they're not even at issue in either case mentioned here?

    Was that his only crime; one burglary?

    The same reason we discussed them when it was Dukakis that made a political pardon, some believe this cost him the election, I of course, disagree with that assumption.

    You have proof of this or are you basing it on faith?

    Actually, he claimed to be Jesus.

    You're not looking very hard, are you?

    Mr. Huckabee, now a Fox News talk-show host, has been leading the pack of possible Republican contenders for president in 2012. But the killings of the police officers are focusing renewed attention on his long-contentious record of pardoning convicts or commuting their sentences.

    In a decade as governor beginning in 1996, Mr. Huckabee did so twice as many times as his three predecessors combined. He typically gave little explanation for individual pardons. But he spoke often of his belief in redemption, based on a strong religious belief that even criminals are capable of changing their lives and often deserve a second chance. He also raised concerns about the fairness of the Arkansas justice system. --NYT

    Hardly. His Arkansas record:

    To clarify matters, here's what Arkansas state Correction Department spokesman Dina Tyler says the state record shows for a criminal past for Maurice Clemmons, who's being sought for questioning in the slaying of four Washington police officers.

    * Sentenced to 5 years for robbery in Pulaski County, Aug. 3, 1989.

    * Sentenced to 8 years for burglary, theft and probation revocation in Pulaski County, Sept. 9, 1989

    * Sentenced to an indeterminate amount for aggravated robbery and theft in Pulaski County, Nov. 15, 1989

    * Sentenced to 20 years each for burglary and theft of property in Pulaski County, Feb. 23, 1990.

    * Sentenced to 6 years for firearm possession in Pulaski County, Nov. 19, 1990.

    Tyler said some sentences were concurrent and some consecutive. But the total effect of all these sentences was a sentence of 108 years.

    On May 3, 2000, Gov. Mike Huckabee commuted Clemmons' sentence to 47 years, 5 months and 19 days, which made him eligible for parole that day. The Parole Board granted his parole July 13, 2000. He was released Aug. 1, 2000.

    Clemmons then returned to prison for a July 13, 2001 conviction for robbery in Ouachita County, for which he received a 10-year sentence. He was paroled March 18, 2004. --Maurice Clemmons' Record

    So you assume you know what it would be like to be all knowing?
