Could anyone "pass"

It's amusing to me that every campaign (or not-yet-campaigns like Fred Thompons's) feel the need to issue press releases with their position on the Libby commutation. Predictably, this has fallen on party lines -- the Democrats have said it's wrong, the Republicans have said it right.

It would be impressive if one candidate had the humility and courage to admit he didn't know enough about the case to say one way or the other whether it was the right thing to do.

As it is, the event is kind of like a Rorschach test -- the reactions tell more about the people reacting than the event itself.
