Reading Newsweek last night, I was struck by a little piece rating the likely odds that some high-profile offenders would receive late pardons from President Bush. The magazine rated George Ryan's chances pretty high, at 10:1.

I think Blagojevich has ruined any chance that Ryan might have had. What "signal" would it send to pardon a corrupt Illinois governor in the current news environment, especially one from the opposite party?
