In a Tuesday interview with the AP's Mike Glover, Hillary Clinton drew a distinction between President Bush's decision to commute the sentence of Scooter Libby – which she has harshly criticized since it was announced on Monday – and her husband's 140 pardons in his closing hours in office.

Just last month, Clinton was reluctant to speak out on the possibility of a pardon.

"Oh, I think there would be enough to be said about that without me adding to it," Clinton told MSNBC's Chris Matthews at last month's AFSCME forum.

Matthews scolded Clinton for giving "such a political answer." He was subsequently booed by some of the AFSCME members in attendance for not asking a real question.
