What did
I tell ya? Sure enough, Miers has withdrawn.

Now here's a real 'what if'. What if Bush knew an indictment was possible or actually in the pipe over the whole Plame thing (something I'm still not convinced is going to happen,) and used this whole hooha to buy time and to sound out which repub senators would be willing to fight for a supreme? What if this was his way of scaring them all into line so that they go ahead and confirm a real conservative to the court before the '06 elections?

I don't pretend to know the plan. I just know that Bush is a much better strategist than he's popularly given credit for. (Especially after the mastery of the Roberts nomination.) I know better than to misunderestimate him 5 years in. Although, if I am correct, I'll have to give the man the mind-fuck gold medal for the way he's played his own party.
