Miers withdraws Supreme Court nomination

Quote:
WASHINGTON - Confronted with criticism from both the left and right, Harriet Miers on Thursday withdrew her nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In a statement, President Bush said he “reluctantly accepted” her decision to withdraw, after weeks of insisting that he did not want her to step down.

The White House said he blamed her withdrawal on calls in the Senate for the release of internal White House documents that the administration has insisted were protected by executive privilege.
Who gets to declare victory on this one??

It's embarrassing for Bush.

But I think in the long run it'll be a victory for conservatives. I believe we'll get another nominee in the vein of John Roberts, an obvious conservative with strong academic credentials and judicial experience.

It certainly shows that a system of checks and balances does still exist.

Hopefully all this bad news for the republicans in Washington will trickle down here in Virginia and we'll get Tim Kaine in the governor's mansion

I'm feelin good!

I'll be interested to see who his next nominee is though...man? woman? extreme right wing? moderate right wing?

Quote:
The radical right wing of the Republican Party killed the Harriet Miers nomination,"

Under withering attack from conservatives, President Bush abandoned his push to put loyalist Harriet Miers on the Supreme Court and promised a quick replacement Thursday. Democrats accused him of bowing to the "radical right wing of the Republican Party."

The White House said Miers had withdrawn because of senators' demands to see internal documents related to her role as counsel to the president. But politics played a larger role: Bush's conservative backers had doubts about her ideological purity, and Democrats had little incentive to help the nominee or the embattled GOP president.

"Let's move on," said Republican Sen. Trent Lott of Mississippi. "In a month, who will remember the name Harriet Miers?"

if they're smart... i.e. karl rove is back making the decisions and not worrying about his own problems... they'll go for another roberts-esque nomination.

if they're not... i.e. karl has too much shit of his on going on and W gets to make his own decisions... they'll go for whoever was bush's freshman roommate at yale.

or maybe sammy sosa.
