Miers won't withdraw

The White House says Harriet Miers won’t withdraw. A full read of the article reveals how tone deaf the White House has gone on this nomination. Just the other day they were touting Miers’ evangelical Christian connection, now they’re Scott McClellan is castigating the media for focusing on the religion “side issue” (WH Press Conference transcript).

Ultimately the nomination will probably come down to the votes of the likely Republican candidates for president in 2008 (Frist, Allen, Brownback, etc), who will be in much the same quandary as Sentate Democrats who are eying presidential runs were over Chief Justice Roberts nomination.

Elsewhere, John Hawkins at Right Wing News makes his case against the Miers Supreme Court nomination in quotes. It’s pretty devastating.
