What's up with clemency?

This morning, I should be on NPR talking about clemency-- it is an unusual week for that subject. The Pardon Attorney, Deborah Leff, announced that she was leaving effective at the end of January, but no replacement has been named. I really have no idea what is going on with that-- it is a mystery being closely guarded within the administration.

The last year of the Obama administration is one in which he can do great good, in this and other areas.  The attention of the political reporters will be elsewhere as the election contest rages on, and the scrutiny will be lessened.

There are simple steps he could take to fix the clemency process, as I have described before.  If he doesn't, I expect that there will be a moment in ten years when he regrets that choice.
