I wish people wouldn't get so excited about Harriet Miers' withdrawal as a nominee for the Supreme Court. Sorry to sound so cynical (and I hope I don't offend any Republicans on my list), but isn't it obvious? By nominating her, Bush will A) get credit for nominating a woman and B) make his next choice of nominee look so much more acceptable. It's all a ruse. Plus, the Democrats have blown all their energy on this; what will they have left to block a more considerable candidate?
