In an interview with National Review this morning, a senior Senate Republican said he firmly expects President Bush to continue to stand behind Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers. The Republican said the president is absolutely convinced, without question, that Miers is the right choice, and that even if Miers herself wanted to withdraw, the president would not accept it. The senior Republican also said that while it is the party’s responsibility to ensure that Miers is given a fair and civil process in the Senate, her confirmation hearings promise to be tough.
Geez Louise. This is going to be a disaster.
