Leadership v. Gutless, Unjust, Opportunism

Re former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee's decision to make Maurice Clemmons eligible for parole via a commutation of sentence, Errol Louis writes:

Huckabee could have done the easy, politically safe thing by letting ludicrously heavy sentences stand. Instead, he opted to bring a measure of proportionality, compassion and common sense to a justice system that needs more of it.

and adds:
Huckabee made a tough decision that many others would have ducked. That's not a liability, it's leadership.
