Subject: RE: BS: Libby convicted
As I think about it, my guess is that Scooter will probably be given a Martha Stewart-like sentence. It wouldn't surprise me if his lawyers were able to persuade the judge to let him stay out of jail pending appeal, in which case, look for a pardon in early January, 2009, just before W. leaves the building.

I agree that any money that may have to be coughed up -- bond on appeal, fines -- isn't likely to be coming out of Scooter's own pocket.
