President Bush has accepted the withdrawal request of his latest Supreme Court nominee, Harriet Ellan Miers.
In my opinion, this is a serious mistake.
It is definitely Ms Miers' perogative to request a withdrawal of her name from the nomination.
But the President should have insisted on her receiving a hearing from the Senate Judiciary Committee. After all, the hearings were set to open on Monday, November 7th.
I understand her desire to "keep the peace"--what little may be left.
Whomever the "new nominee" may be, I sincerely hope that Jim Dobson (Focus on the Family) will keep his "inside information" to himself...and not breathe a word to anyone for any reason.
After all, Dr Dobson is not the President of these United States.
At least, not the last time I voted, he wasn't on the ballot.
