Miers Has Withdrawn

Harriet Miers has withdrawn her nomination to the Supreme Court.

Good for Ms. Miers.

Ms. Miers isn't a bad person - but she was a poor choice for the court. She was too much of an unknown quanity in terms of her judicial judgement. The Supreme Court is too important a body not to have a better idea of what her approach to law and the Constitution are.

And to those whose who worry about the Court's demographics - is the Court about politics - or the law? Find the best qualified people you can, regardless of their race, gender, or other chracteristics; find people who respect the law, and hold the Constitution supreme.

Now, back to the drawing board. I'm still agitating for Michael McConnell, but I'm no lawyer. And I didn't sleep at a Holiday Inn last night.

that's okay; the supreme court is a sham anyways.

Remember my post from a while back... Miers wasn't nominated to actually fill a spot on the court. It was part of a political maneuver designed to help the next nominee get in more easily. Just wait and see!

I don't know, Nate. That isn't Bush's style. Besides, those after blood (the Democrats) were the most supportive of her. So she couldn't have been a sacrificial lamb. It was the conservatives that didn't like her.
