Friday afternoon, the President will withdraw the Meiers nomination.
You read it hear first.
The President faces a lose-lose situation. If he wins, he loses. History shows that the mediacrats will give him no support for sticking to his guns on the nomination. If he succeeds in putting Meiers on the court, he sticks a fork in the eye of his core supporters headed into the 2006 midterms.
He has no choice. The dye is cast. Take a mulligan and pick someone better.
There isn't much positive on this, but to seek a silver lining -- at least this creates a precedent for Republicans denying a President's nomination of a stealth candidate with a minimal public record on legal issues. I hope we don't have to rely on that precedent again with a Democrat president, but it could be useful.
I'd rather we not have the precedent and didn't go through this un-needed bloodletting, but it is what it is.
