Harriet Miers has proven her profound friendship with the President of the United States by withdrawing her name as a nominee to the SCOTUS bench, thus becoming a much-needed relief valve for a beleagured George Bush and a Republican majority in the Senate that had been growing increasingly restive over the president's choice and the suspect credentials of a Bush-described conservative lawyer for whom her speeches and past writings have suggested otherwise.

Harriet Miers is to be applauded for her act of courage and good judgement and discretion. She has done the country a great service and given President Bush a second chance to fulfill his commitment to those who put him into office.
