What does harry reid have to say about thisturn of events
:The radical right wing of the Republican Party killed the Harriet Miers nomination.
No, harry, her utter inadequacy for the position killed her nomination. reid claimed some responsibility (Reg) for bush selecting meiers and by doing so demonstrates no more competence than bush did in making the selection. There is, though, always the possibility that this has played out just the way reid expected, that he took advantage of the empty suit.
