Disappointment in Miers' Withdrawal

In writing this post, I may just be the lone conservative voicing a disappointment in Harriet Miers' withdrawal from consideration for Supreme Court justice. (I'm not sure, because I'm out of the blog loop for the time being). I was pleased that Bush had nominated someone who calls herself a strict constructionist and who was so involved in her evangelical church. Perhaps my best praise of the Miers' nomination, though, was that she had not been a judge in her lengthy legal career. Wow, someone familiar with the law but not ingrained with the "legislate from the bench" mentality. Could it be? Thus, my disappointment in seeing her go. It seemed to good to be true and I guess it was. Unfortunately, we'll probably get someone less pro-life to fill her nomination. May that not be the case. Keep praying, folks.
