Miers Withdraws, The Anchoress Looks Smart

Well, since Miers withdrew I imagine a lot of people are going to be pretty happy. I don't think her withdrawal letter was exactly candid:
As you know, members of the Senate have indicated their intention to seek documents about my service in the White House in order to judge whether to support me. I have been informed repeatedly that in lieu of records, I would be expected to testify about my service in the White House to demonstrate my experience and judicial philosophy.
Personally, I'm disappointed. I was looking forward with great anticipation to Feinstein's questioning of her:
"Who are you as a non-mother and a non-wife?" and "I'm trying to get a sense of you as a woman...." was what I wanted to hear. After all, female candidates should be treated exactly the same as male candidates, right?

The Anchoress is looking like a pretty hot political analyst. The question that remains is what candidate can be nominated in Miers' place, given that the senators have made it clear that they won't support any conservative candidate. This bids to be very interesting. If The Anchoress is correct, Bush will now nominate a person he should have nominated in the first place - one with impeccable judicial credentials. If so, the Senate will writhe.

I'm not so happy today. In this instance, I'm not sure who the 'dopes' really were.
I would prefer a nominee with a different type of background. I liked that about Miers, and now I don't believe that any such nominee can get through the system.
