Harriet Miers, a recommendation

I highly recommend Eriposte's excellent overview of Harriet Miers -- "Who is Harriet Miers?" -- at The Left Coaster. It's one of the highlights of the blogosphere's reaction to her nomination to the Supreme Court. In a separate post, Eriposte predicts that Miers will "withdraw herself from contention". A good prediction, if you ask me. There's no way she belongs on the Supreme Court, and she'll withdraw before she goes down to defeat.

See also this piece in the Post:

The conservative uprising against President Bush escalated yesterday as Republican activists angry over his nomination of White House counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court confronted the president's envoys during a pair of tense closed-door meetings...

The tenor of the two meetings suggested that Bush has yet to rally his own party behind Miers and underscores that he risks the biggest rupture with the Republican base of his presidency. While conservatives at times have assailed some Bush policy decisions, rarely have they been so openly distrustful of the president himself.

Read on. The "rupture" is upon us.
