Anti-Miers coalitions

A couple of anti-Miers coalitions have sprung up, and Better Justice. I applaud them, but I don't think it is necessary. This nomination has been listing in the water for a while now. It is just a matter of time before it goes under.

And actually, I'm leaning towards giving her a hearing. It would be risky, but I don't see any way Democrats could vote for her, given her position on abortion. A few defections on the Republican side, and the Democrats get to block a Supreme Court nominee. And I think it would leave them less able to block the next one without appearing blatantly obstructionist.
