Harriet Miers has asked to withdraw her nomination and the president has accepted. While I'm sure she is a fine person and a wonderful human being, she was not an acceptable supreme court nominee. The appearance of impropriety surrounding her nomination saw to that. Not only did she not have any evidence of deep-seated conservative principles, but she headed up the search committee that chose her as the nominee. That doesn't cut it folks.
Now can we please get a decent nominee, i.e. not Alberto Gonzalez. Not this guy either as amusing as it might be.
