It appears that Bush has "reluctantly" accepted the withdraw of Harriet Miers' nomination. No complete sources just yet. (Update: NPR News just reported the withdraw).
Last I had heard on NPR, Miers' questionaire had not been resubmitted by the close of the day yesterday, and it was unclear if the White House had met the midnight deadline at all.
lol How do I exhausted political capital?
More bad news: Rove and/or Libby are probably going to get indicted. Is this out of touch America?
Heh, of the withdraw, Bush said:
It is clear that senators would not be satisfied until they gained access to internal documents concerning advice provided during her tenure at the White House -- disclosures that would undermine a president's ability to receive candid counsel
Yea, right. I guess the fact that she couldn't even fill in the preliminary take-home, open-book test without screwing it up had nothing to do with their reservations, right Cmdr. Assmonkey?
