Meirs Withdraws

President Bush's choice for Supreme Court Justice has withdrawn her nomination. The excuse revolved around lawyer-client priveledged communications. The reality is that members of the Senate, on both sides of the aisle, would have voted her down. The further truth is that Bush was receiving extreme pressure, including televised ads, from the extreme right wing of the republican party, to withdraw Meirs from consideration.
