As I'm sure you already know, Harriet Miers has withdrawn her nomination . Some folks say this was a cave in to the far right interest groups. My guess is that Miers was a half-hearted attempt at a "moderate" candidate and maybe a set-up to put in that "conservative" judge.

And now, the speculation has begun. Alberto Gonzalez? Karen Williams? Judge Edith Brown Clement? I think it's definitely going to be a nominee from the far-right. SCOTUSblog says that Gonzalez is probably out because he would run into the same problem as Miers: giving access to White House legal papers.

Who's it gonna be? It's anyone's guess.
