Oh my, how long it's been, and we start with a headline like this? My keyboard is fired up, so here we go. Harriet Miers has withdrawn as a nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court. The basis for her withdrawal seems to be that key conservatives were not impressed with her credentials. So the challenge to her nomination was from the right, which begs the question: How smart IS Carl Rove? After all, now the White House will be expected to nominate a "real" conservative. Meanwhile, NPR News will offer an hour-long program today from 1 to 2 pm Central on the Harriet Miers nomination withdrawal, hosted by Neal Conan. WILL-AM 580 will air this live.
