Bob, I think your bigger problem is logic, not memory.  Turn off the 
hate radio.

Libby, convicted of lying and obstructing a federal investigation.
Clinton, convicted of nothing.

Bush, commuting sentence of former high official while in office to 
frustrate ongoing inquiries and to protect himself and the 
Clinton, neither pardoned nor commuted sentence of any administration 
official during office.

Fitzgerald, spent a few million and reached a conviction.
Starr and fellow chumps, spent $50 million and returned diddly-squat.  
Jones also proved squat.

Libby, assailed by media and pundits as "stand-up" guy set up as scapegoat.
Clinton pursued by right-wing plutocrats funding smear campaigns.

Libby, pursued by GOP-appointed Republican federal prosecutor respected 
as one of the handful of best federal prosecutors in the nation
Clinton pursued by hard-partisan GOP special prosecutor actively 
involved in supporting GOP campaigns

Clinton's antagonist appointed by his own DOJ but operated independently.
Abu Gonzales' DOJ...need I say more?

And finally, I know it is trite and some may be offended, but...

sexual harassment - never proven mind you - is not outing a covert 
agent as part of a campaign to lie the country into a catastrophic war.

lying about sexual harassment - never proven mind you - is not the same 
as being convicted of lying about outing a CIA operative.  And I am not 
even all postal about outing CIA agents.

These weeds need to be pulled, roots and all.
