Libby: Think about my whole life

The defendant has a few -- a very few -- words to say before sentencing.

If Judge Reggie B. Walton was looking for some sign that Scooter Libby accepts responsibility or feels remorse for the crimes he has committed, he might be feeling a little disappointed in the words he just heard from the defendant. As Firedoglake reports, Libby exercised his right to address the court before sentencing by thanking the court's staff for being nice to him and asking Walton to consider his entire life before deciding his fate. If Libby acknowledges his guilt -- if he feels remorse for what he's done -- it seems that he didn't say as much to Walton.
