Woo-hoo! In other words, Miers has withdrawn her nomination. I should probably reserve my elation until after Bush makes a replacement nomination, but at this moment it just feels very good to see Bush reach the limit of what he can do over conservative objections (possibly because I'm still nursing wounds over things like the 2003 Medicare bill, which conservative came within two votes of stopping in the House).

Apparently Bush is following Krauthammer's advice, and is giving the following transparent excuse:
"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.
