I just had a unpleasant thought

If the Miers nomination fails, we could be in store for an even nastier internecine war. Bush/Miers supporters are going to be as upset as the opponents were at the nomination. And some of them are going to aim their guns right at the opponents and come out firing. The biggest political threat from a failure might be an escalation of this fight.

If there is a silver lining to all of this, it is that this is happening now and not 6 months or a year from now. Just the same, Democrats might have something to gain from torpedoing this pick.
