Press Secretary Expects "Some" Pardons

From today's press conference:

QUESTION: Is President Bush planning any pardons before he leaves office? And will he do what some other Presidents have done, and wait to release the names of those pardons in the very last minutes of his administration?

MS. PERINO: We never discuss pardons and the process. Of course, anybody who is eligible to request a pardon can do so, and they are given due consideration at the Justice Department, at the Office of the Pardon Attorney. I can't tell you when the President would be issuing pardons; I expect that there would be some. I don't expect them in the last day, though.
