BBC doing its best to prolong Miers' 15 minutes
Will we, years from now and following a particularly interesting Supreme Court decision, be reminded that the deciding vote was cast by Justice Alito, Harriet Myers having withdrawn herself when conservatives refused to support her nomination?
BTW, note the stellar BBC coverage of the confirmation vote. It doesn't even reveal what the final vote in the Senate was. (For those interested, it was 58-42.)
