Skipping Libby?

Is it possible that Bush will let Scooter Libby take the fall? I didn't think there was a chance in hell he wouldn't issue a pardon on this one.

Then again, looks like Scooter might be in for some jail time, if this is true and not just a poor choice of words:
In his final acts of clemency, President George W. Bush on Monday commuted the prison sentences of two former U.S. Border Patrol agents whose convictions for shooting a Mexican drug dealer ignited fierce debate about illegal immigration. [emphasis mine]
Final acts? Meaning, no love for Libby? Wow.
