Miers withdraws

Now the president will have to go back to the drawing board to find a replacement for Sandra Day O’Connor, as Harriet Miers has withdrawn her Supreme Court nomination. This shouldn’t really be a surprise, given that her questionaire answers were so incomplete according to both Arlen Specter and Patrick Leahy. She probably didn’t want to be on the Court, as it is likely that such incomplete answers came from increasing nervousness rather than evasiveness and protecting attorney-client privilege, and this nervousness could be led to the withdrawal. It will be interesting to see who would be next to be nominated. Will Bush pick an experienced judge this time, or will he try another judicial rookie?
