Harriet Miers: A Prediction


by eriposte

I usually don't like to make predictions, especially on matters that are not within the realm of my expertise. But, just for fun, I'm going to make a prediction tonight.

It's true that there's not a whole lot known about Harriet Miers just yet, but a review of what is known (and a glimpse at this WP story) tells me that one of the following two scenarios is likely to pan out sometime in the next few weeks before Miers' nomination hearings.

(a) Miers will withdraw herself from contention citing some yet-to-be-determined reason (say, a deep interest in staying focused as Bush's "work-wife" or a newfound interest in exploring Mars)

(b) Some Kerikesque fake problem will emerge from Miers' past, leading her to withdraw herself from contention, thereby becoming a strong contender for the next Presidential Medal of Freedom.
