Miers' Withdraws Nomination

Miers has withdrawn herself from consideration for an appointment to the nation's highest court, after characterizing her nomination as "not in the best interest of the country." In his response to the events of the morning, Ed Gillepsie struck a note of contrition, saying that Miers had abjured not due to pressure from conservative crusaders, but out of a respect for privleged White House information that legislators have reportedly demanded. Said Jeffery Toobin, legal affairs editor for The New Republic, " "The problem was Harriet Miers didn't present that sort of clean [idelaogical] fight."
