"Obama held three of those annual turkey-pardoning ceremonies before he pardoned his first human being. By the time he announced his first nine pardons in December, he had gone longer without using the clemency power than any other president except George W. Bush. And as P.S. Ruckman pointed out on his Pardon Power blog, those first nine were hardly inspiring acts of leadership." (01/10/11)
