  •  Brooks on Newshour 10/21 (none)
    Just last Friday, on the Newshour, David Brooks said that not only would Bush NOT withdraw her nomination, but that he WOULDN'T allow her to withdraw her nomination if she so wanted.  So a complete sea change in less than a week.

    I also think the Dems, who were guardedly supportive of her, are in a good position to fight the next nominee if she/he is a radical ideologue.  They can point to their willingness to listen to Miers as a sign of their good faith and brand the next one, if that person is a wingnut, as unacceptable.
