So long Harriet Miers. Hello Lame Duck Presidency.
This one's a plus and a minus, honestly. Will Bush nominate someone who will please conservatives with their radical views, or a moderate that continue to show his fear of a Democratic backlash.
He's screwed either way and there's a good reason: he's invested a great deal of his "political capital" into screwing Democrats at every turn, and now that his own party is turning away from his failed policies, he's a goner. He's got no one out there that supports him.
Looking more like Nixon every day.
If the indictments come down today (and they very well should) then we may be looking at this day as the day Bush's presidency finally went up in flames.
If only this had happened in the first term.
