Redstate thinks something is brewing:
Consider the following:
Today, White House Counsel Harriet Miers met for several hours with multiple Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. These same members have been called to the White House multiple times over the past week to discuss the Supreme Court.
The Attorney General’s office has sent representatives to the hill every day this week, and has had previously unseen amounts of contact with the leading members of the committee.
In the staff rooms of the committee offices, there are stacks and stacks of folders on potential Supreme Court nominees – their strengths and weaknesses enumerated at length. Lower level staff have been told to clear next week, and solely devote their work to research on Supreme Court Nominees – a handful of names.
Whoever it is – they’re coming.
