"Withdraw This Nominee"


Charles Krauthammer joins the anti-Miers conservative camp:

If Harriet Miers were not a crony of the president of the United States, her nomination to the Supreme Court would be a joke, as it would have occurred to no one else to nominate her.

Another interesting observation: If the president's goal is adding a judge who'll be deferential to executive power in the war on terror, it may backfire if Miers' possible role in shaping the very policies she'd be asked to rule on ends up requiring her to frequently recuse herself.
