Is Lance about to 'fess up?

The Herald reports:

Lance Armstrong is reportedly on the verge of publicly admitting he used performance enhancing drugs throughout his cycling career.
The respected New York Times is reporting the disgraced American has told associates and anti-doping officials that he is considering a public admission.
The newspaper claims that is according to several sources with direct knowledge of the situation.
It is believed he would do it because he wants to persuade anti-doping officials to restore his eligibility so he can resume his athletic career.
Armstrong has vehemently denied ever doping, but was found guilty by the UCI and stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned from cycling for life.
When asked about whether he would admit to doping, Armstrong's lawyer Tim Herman said anything is possible.

If Armstrong does finally come clean on the doping allegations that have seen an overwhelming case built against him, it will provide a sense of finality. It will also vindicate those who went out on a limb by giving incriminating testimony against the former Tour de France star.

Confession is good for the soul Lance.

Confession may be good for the soul, but doing what is good for "his" soul is immaterial to his standing with other souls. Doing what is ultimately the best for himself is simply more of the same.
Will his judgement of the words or actions of others take on new credibility?
Will his changed spots seem more attractive?
Will he start again with a clean sheet?
Confess away, but who else ultimately cares?
The test of honesty is what you would do if you knew no else would ever find out.
