The Krauthammer Option Picks up Steam

Charles Krauthammer's notion that Miers nomination can be stopped simply by Republican Senators demanding information while she worked in the White House appears to be picking up steam. As John Fund notes: "Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Arlen Specter told reporters he wants a list of the subject areas that Mr. Miers worked on in her capacity as White House counsel. That's because a Justice Miers would be expected to disqualify herself from at least some cases involving Mr. Bush or the federal government." With requests in from Brownback and Graham, we may have three Republicans just on the Senate Judiciary Committee. A couple of more and it is doubtful that Miers could pick up enough Democratic votes on the Committee to offset this loss.
