  •  is a Miers failure..the plan? (none)
    very interesting from americablog:

     think conservatives are going to try to kill the Harriet Miers nomination

    and a commenter might have a point

    "Oh man, you guys, you are wasting your time - the reason that Dubya put Miers in is because she would NOT get confirmed and then he will nominate Owens or someone of her ilk.

    Quit spinning and see that once again, you (we) are being manipulated by Rove...

    •  Seems a little too complicated for Bush (none)

    •  It's interesting how bloggers attack positions (none)
      by inventing elaborate scenarios where BushCo ends up the eventual winner, and then say:

      "Can't you see you're being manipulated by Rove?"

      Rove may be good at elections but he can screw up just like anybody else -- e.g. plamegate, social security privitazation, katrina, etc.

      Don't act based on whether it's something he wants you to do or not.

    •  I doubt this is the case (none)
      If this was the strategery, the risk is too high that it backfires - because isn't she on Reid's list of "approved" nominees?

      •  C'mon (none)

        Reid is anti-choice.  As long as a candidate isn't off the right side of the screen on other issues but IS anti-choice, Reid will be more than happy with them.

        Don't count on Reid's support to be a good barometer.  She is anti-choice to the extreme and she WILL allow her personal and religious beliefs drive her rulings.  This is unacceptable.  I don't give a flying f*ck what your personal feelings or religious beliefs about something are, that is irrelevant to matters dealing with secular law.  Anyone who even leans in the direction of allowing their religion drive their rulings is unfit for the Supreme Court.  Period.
