Is there a solution to the open seat problem?

I don't really think this is fair to ask of her, but I'll throw it out there. If nothing else, it sends a message to the Bush administration that he needs to stop pandering to the far far far right out of their minds group.
for your review-------

President Bush has accepted Harriet Miers' request to be withdrawn from consideration for the Supreme Court, giving the far right a second chance to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor with a staunchly anti-choice nominee.
The right wing made no secret of their disapproval of Miers. Time and again they made their one and only requirement for the next Supreme Court Justice clear: an ideologue who will vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. Miers' thin public record and contradictory statements on the right to choose fell far short of meeting their rigid standards.
"There is absolutely no guarantee that she would end up voting [to overturn Roe] if given the opportunity." Paul M. Weyrich, founder of the Free Congress Foundation (Washington Post, Oct. 19, 2005.)
"It is time for Ms. Miers to show good cause why she should receive the support of the pro-life community or withdraw her name from consideration to the Supreme Court of the United States.... so that President Bush may nominate someone with a proven history who all conservatives can support." Troy Newman, Operation Rescue (Operation Rescue press release, Oct. 6, 2005.)

Don't make it easy for Bush to cave in to pressure from his far right supporters again.
Please send a message to President Bush immediately.

Urge him to ask Justice Sandra Day O'Connor to serve out this current term. There is absolutely no reason for Bush to rush the process. Instead, he should think of what's best for the country - and what's best right now is to maintain continuity and stability on the Supreme Court.


NOW says to ask her yourself, HERE!
