The Final Chapter[?]

"It is clear that senators would not be satisfied until they gained access to internal documents concerning advice provided during her tenure at the White House _ disclosures that would undermine a president's ability to receive candid counsel," Bush said. "Harriet Miers' decision demonstrates her deep respect for this essential aspect of the constitutional separation of powers _ and confirms my deep respect and admiration for her."

What is to happen next?

I must say that I am not completely dissapointed that she withdrew. Hopefully, President Bush has learned from this and we will see a reflection in his next candidate of what he promised us in the run up to 2004. As your humble pundit has said before,

"As for now, your humble pundit will withhold any official stance upon the matter, for one must not rush to conclusions in these matters until all the information to be mulled over is indeed mulled over; however, with that said, President Bush has disappointed many of us, again. The decision should not be one with much question at all, and his choice should resemble something that he promised during his campaign. Conservatives deserve better, President Bush. Miers may inevitably turn into a conservative icon some day, but conservatives deserve better than to cross their fingers and pray, hoping that this will come to fruition.

President Bush stated what he would do if given this monumental opportunity during both of his campaigns for the presidency. Judge Roberts was an enigma, but proved himself to be a worthy choice through his uncanny ability to articulate his jurisprudential philosophy before the Judiciary Committee. Yet, all in all, we do not truly know where and how his actions will lead the Court as Chief Justice. This same logic should be construed in analyzing the Miers nomination, except this time, the more we find out about this nominee illustrates how much we truly do not know about this nominee."
