Pelosi Statement on Harriet Miers' Withdrawal as United States Supreme Court Nominee

WASHINGTON, Oct. 27 /U.S. Newswire/ -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today in response to Harriet Miers' withdrawal of her nomination for United States Supreme Court Justice:

"The withdrawal of Harriet Miers' nomination to the Supreme Court raises the question: who is in charge here? Initially, questions were raised of whether she was independent of the President. Now the question is how independent of the radical right-wing agenda will the next appointment be.

"The American people want nominees to the Supreme Court to be people with the highest qualifications and independence, who are committed to upholding the Constitution, not to any political agenda. The President should look for these qualities when making his next appointment."
