The narrow gate

James Dobson made some revealing comments today about his recent conversation with Karl Rove on how the list of Supreme Court nominees had been narrowed:

(CNSNews.com) - Focus on the Family Chairman James Dobson said Wednesday President Bush had decided to nominate a woman to succeed retiring Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, which shortened the list and then several candidates dropped out. Dobson revealed details of his conversation with White House adviser Karl Rove prior to the announcement of the Harriet Miers nomination. "What Karl told me is that some of those individuals took themselves off that list and they would not allow their names to be considered, because the process has become so vicious and so vitriolic and so bitter that they didn't want to subject themselves or the members of their families to it," Dobson said, according to the transcript.

This Jim Huber cartoon sums up my official take on the Miers nomination:
