The Virtue of Gratitude
Posted by: Dale Franks on Thursday, November 15, 2007

Jake Tapper reports on an interesting phenomenon:
Three recipients of controversial 11th-hour pardons issued by former President Bill Clinton in January 2001 have donated thousands of dollars to the presidential campaign of his wife, Democratic front-runner Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., according to campaign finance records examined by ABC News, in what some good government groups said created an appearance of impropriety.
Well, appearance of impropriety aside, if I had received one of those midnight pardons, I would think that it's only good manners to show my appreciation.

So, we’re back to the old Church practice of selling indulgences. Didn’t realize the Clintons were Catholic.

I thinks it’s less about gratitude and more about forethought. After all might as well have your felony foregiveness card ready for the next time you defraud, embezzle, swindle, or betray your nation.

I must agree with your last part; had I received a—late or not—pardon I would most probably donate as well out of courtesy too!

In truth, I’d have to agree with Dale here. I mean, gratitude is gratitude.
