It seems to me that the President will be condemned for pardoning or not pardoning. But I think he should in all honesty.

I'm sure Obama, after appointing a Czar on this topic, will make a deadline for this to be resolved and the "final" decision will be made sometime there after.

Why would McCain even care. I think there are more important issues to "press" Obama on.
