Best news yesterday: Obama is searching for inmates who could use a sentence commutation. Deputy AG James Cole said during a speech:
It is the department's goal to find additional candidates, who are similarly situated to the eight granted clemency last year, and recommend them to the president for clemency consideration,"
Candidates for clemency would include inmates who have had clean records in prison, do not present a threat to public safety and are facing excessive sentences, according to the speech.
