Humanizing Scooter Libby
All lawyers like to humanize their clients, to show to the world (in a high profile case) and the jury in a routine case, that their client is more than the sum of any misdeeds he may have committed.
Very little of that has gone on so far in the Libby trial, but today there is a long profile of Mr. Libby in the New York Times, that attempts to do the job.
You read, you decide. Did it accomplish its mission?
Update: Is That Legal? says "no." On a related note, James Joyner at Outside the Beltway wonders if Scooter Libby can get a fair trial. Pacachutec at Firedoglake recaps Day 1 of jury selection and already beginning to blog on Day 2.
