Miers Withdrawal-One Step Forward, Two Steps Back?

Harriet Miers has withdrawn her nomination to the SCOTUS. The White Huse claims it is due to their unwillingness to release executive branch documents to the Senate for review. This is a good excuse but probably not what the real reasons for the withdrawal are.
The real reasons might be:

She decided she'd rather open an adorable little dress-shop in the shadow of the Reunion tower in Dallas.

She couldn't stand the thought of meeting with one more freaking Senator leading up to the confirmation hearings.

She knew she would have trouble under the scrutiny of both conservatives and liberals.

Because ideologues bullied her and the president into making her decision.

Personally, I think that the documents were an excuse and ideologues bullied her and the president into it. It may come back to haunt the ideological "conservatives", thus it may haunt reasonable conservatives, as well. If we have been robbed of a good logical-thinking conservative on the bench and end up placing a turn-coat there instead-I will be extremely annoyed at those pundits and conservative charade-masters who brought it about by their unreasonable opposition to Ms. Miers!
On the other hand, If the new justice turns out to be a common-sense legal genius who understands the real role of conservatism, I will shower loads of praise upon their efforts which will have resulted in that scenario, also!

All that said, I can now say....Wheeeeeew!
