Petition for the Withdrawal of the Nomination of Harriet Miers to the U.S. Supreme Court

I just submitted my name. I don't know how everyone feels about this but if you believe that her nomination is a mistake I strongly urge you to do the same. The administration is being stubborn about this and they need to know that opposition is strong and that they should nominate a person who has qualifications and who has a record supporting originalism. We should only accept Miers withdrawal and summary execution.

One more thing, don't most conservatives read National Review or the WSJ opinion pages? At least once and awhile? I am getting more and more bothered about this nomination as time goes by and part of that is the feeling that Miers should step down because it would be good for the team. Her nomination is splitting the conservative movement like nothing else since George W. Bush took office. A team player would realize that she is hurting the movement and she is hurting her president. If she doesn't care about the movement then I can understand sticking around; this being the worst case scenario. But then, she should have her nomination withdrawn for that reason.

Someone who is deaf to her critics within the group of partisans that is the most supportive of the president whom she so openly admires is not someone you can count on to fight for your principles once she is given a lifetime appointment.
