The Harriet Miers nomination - the good the bad and the ugly.

I have been a supporter of Harriet Miers because I support the President. She would have not been my first pick, she may have never been my pick because I don't know much about her, and still don't. Make no mistake, this will be a short term hit to the President, and a lifetime stigma to Miers, however her withdrawal will save the President and the Republican party from a disaster that would have occurred if Miers' Senate hearings would have gone foreword. I read a post last night that made me rethink my support of Miers. Captain Ed had a post that convinced me that Miers would be made to look very foolish in front of Joe Biden and the other members of the Judicial committee.

Chief Justice Roberts stood up to the scrutiny and then some. Answering questions for two days without looking at his notes is a clear indication of his knowledge of the law and the Supreme Court. I believe, all though we will never know, that Harriet Miers has been going through mock hearings and I don't think she did very well. That is my take.

Short term, a bad week for the President, if he comes back with Judge Luttig or Judge McConnell, we will be in for a fight to be sure, but the President will have the entire party behind him.

Get Real. Nobody can look foolish when next to or questioned by Biden.

Ralph, folks that follow this and have just one conservative bone in their body know Biden is a self-righteous blow hard that needs to have a full length mirror and a camera crew with him 24-7.

To those who follow the news by watching the headlines or the MSN evening news, Biden is the gotcha king, he is sets traps for you to fall in.

He is very intelligent, just not real smart.

Ralph... the extremists want a bloodbath in the Senate. Like another Bork hearing... that is what they are gonna get...

Meanwhile Pro-Death Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is going to write a 5-4 decision against Parental notification... Congratulations...
