Asked at Peet's Coffee & Tea on Railroad Avenue in Danville

Do you agree with President Bush commuting Scooter Libby's 30-month prison sentence for perjury and obstruction of justice?

No, I don't because he should be treated like every other citizen. He should be subject to the laws like everyone. Our system is an oligarchy. It's by the rich and for the rich. That's what our nation is come to. We are lacking leadership.

I think he did it in good conscience because he was his friend. However, legally, he is out to lunch.

Eunice Wilson

Yes, there was no crime committed and Libby was a victim of an overzealous prosecutor. The prosecutor knew about the leaker before he prosecuted him.

Bill Hunter

He took the fall for (Vice President Richard) Cheney. That's my opinion. Take it or leave it.

Mary Orman

I disagree with it. It's just not fair. What happened to the old America: for the people and by the people. I don't see that anymore. It's all about big interests. Corporate interests and whoever has the most money. If people don't wake up, it's going to continuously get worse and worse.
