Miers Withdraws Nomination I'm glad she withdrew now, instead of prolonging the agony and wasting more time.
"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," Bush said. "Harriet Miers' decision demonstrates her deep respect for this essential aspect of the constitutional separation of powers."
Interesting reason. Hopefully that will allow her to not feel quite so humiliated by this whole fiasco, but I doubt it. For the rest of her life, she'll be remembered as someone who was nominated, but couldn't get confirmed. Ouch.
