The Polanski Question

The Augusta Free Press provides this summary of today's White House press conference:

Q Will the President pardon Polanski? Will he, or not?
MR. GIBBS: I don’t know of any pending pardon request, Lester.
Q Does he believe pedophiles should not be prosecuted?
MR. GIBBS: The President believes pedophiles should be prosecuted, Lester.
Q Thank you.
Q I have a point of observation and inquiry.
MR. GIBBS: We shouldn’t have that. (Laughter.)

Wasn't it a state conviction? How can a federal pardon be granted?
