Hillary Clinton’s Response to ‘Scooter’ Libby Commutation of Sentence Compared to Bill Clinton Pardons

Hillary Clinton’s response to President Bush’s decision Monday to commute the sentence of former White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, sparing him from a 2 1/2-year prison term in the CIA leak case:

This commutation sends the clear signal that in this administration, cronyism and ideology trump competence and justice.” – Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y.

Why does she act surprised that the Bush administration is any different than Bill Clinton’s administration?
