In the wake of Miers resignation, many conservatives have rejoiced. That was definitely my first reaction. But as many in the media and elsewhere are illustrating, this resignation does not mean that Bush will now choose a good nominee. He could still resort to a “consensus” justice, but one that actually has some qualifications.
Let’s hope that doesn’t happen. Let’s hope that he chooses a true conservative with impeccable credentials who the libs will be sure to hate. If he does that, his base will go to bat for him. If he doesn’t, 2006 will be a very bad year.
