HARRIET MIERS = NOT SMART, UNNAMED SOURCES SAY

|

Yesterday, we talked about the potential reasons Harriet Miers resigned as White House counsel. But maybe she didn’t resign so much as she was forced out. The money quote:

Miers, a longtime Bush loyalist whose nomination to the Supreme Court was withdrawn in 2005 as a result of conservative opposition, led an office that will oversee legal clashes that could erupt if Democrats aggressively use their new subpoena power. Bush advisers inside and outside the White House concluded that she is not equipped for such a battle and that the president needs someone who can strongly defend his prerogatives.
