A quote from Hinderaker on Miers withdrawing her nomination:
Power Line: MIers Withdraws: “I feel sorry for Miers; she was caught in a crossfire, and never really had a chance to speak for herself. But what we’ve seen so far may be only a tune-up for what awaits the next nominee.”
1. She could have declined the nomination.
2. The didn’t HAVE to resign, and she clearly could have gotten in front of a any microphone in the country to speak for herself.
Get real, Hinderaker. How can you possibly feel sorry for someone who had as many good options as she did in this situation?
