Miers. What's left to say?

Harriet Miers is getting to be a tough topic to blog on. What else is there to say that hasn't already been said? The entire nomination is on shaky ground, and we still have weeks to wait before the hearings begin. What I'd really like to see is a few enterprising conservatives make a lot of hay about the fact that Miers would probably side with overturning Roe. Not just some hay, A LOT OF HAY. This nomination has been a lose-lose for Republicans so far. Let's make it a lose-lose for Democrats, too! Miers, minus Roe, is probably a no brainer for Democrats. She's the best they'll probably ever get. Miers, plus Roe, is a time bomb. What do they do? Do they vote yes for the best they can get, or do they vote no in order to protect abortion, the pillar of their political strategy? As a conservative and a Republican, I'd like to share this headache with my friends across the aisle. How's that for bi-partisanship? Plus it would be a great topic to write about.
