WASHINGTON — It’s a bit too soon to judge President Barack Obama on his terrible pardon record, Attorney General Eric Holder told a group of African-American newspaper columnists last week.

“We are at year five I guess of eight, so I would say hold on,” Holder told members of the Trotter group, a national organization of black newspaper columnists. “If this was the eighth year and we were looking back, I think we would have something to discuss. But we are at a point where this president still has a power that is uniquely his.”
