Xrlq is finally off the fence about the Miers nomination. Now that he knows that Judge Alito is the replacement nominee, he has chosen to oppose the Miers nomination.
I think this is a bit precipitous since Xrlq doesn't yet know the outcome of the nomination process. What if the Democrats and press mount such a formidable opposition that Bush is devastated and ends up nominating Bill Clinton instead, in an effort to re-unite the country?
I'm still on the fence. I'll come down against the Miers nomination when Alito has been on the bench a decade or so and has established himself as a strong conservative voice on the Court.
