A curious FrontBurnervian asks why we haven’t mentioned here that Harriet Miers withdrew her name from consideration for the Supreme Court (or, more acurately, she offered to have her name withdrawn, and the president withdrew it, because he’s the only one who can submit and withdraw). Anyway, there isn’t much to say that others haven’t already said today and won’t keep saying today. My takeaway: the president gacked this one. He had to know folks would want to see her White House papers. If he wasn’t prepared to show them, he never should have nominated Miers. By doing so without thinking through the process, he did an old friend a disservice.
I presume Miers will soon take her house off the market.
