Bush Said It "He Rules"

As for a future Scooter Libby pardon on top of his wiped away 30 months in jail, President Bush said "As to the future, I rule nothing in and nothing out."

Apparently the President is aware that extrinisic motivators diminish over time. More and more needs to be offered to get the "desired behavior", which in this case could be silence. Will the remarkably tight lipped Scooter stay that way? With a plum private equity or Wall Street job, a full pardon, and a $250,000 rebate courtesy of Uncle Sam, the price could be right. Where's Bob Barker when you need him?
