Harriet Miers withdrew her name from consideration to the SCOTUS this morning. I can't say that anyone is surprised. I wonder who Bush will nominate in her place - maybe an actual judge?
I heard the news on the radio this morning while I was in the shower. I immediately yelled to the Future Lawyer who went directly to the internet. "Well, honey," he said, disappointed, "It seems to be the first time in the history of the world that NPR has scooped the internet." He's spent the last 5 minutes stalking between the rooms in our flat that have radios, eating his toast, and making lawyer-like comments. I love it.
