Plus, a Wikipedia page to watch: List of people pardoned by George W. Bush (it currently reads “In contrast to some of his predecessors, President Bush has been one of the most cautious presidents in modern U.S. history when granting pardons or commutations” but that could change).
UPDATE (9pm) – Some people predicted some audacious/high-profile pardons from Bush at the 11th hour. I was one of them. But so far, Bush has only issued two relatively low-key pardons and The Guardian reports that; “Bush advisers cautioned no more would be coming”.
There are still 20 hours to go, though…
