Looking back at the lovely month of October and pronunciamentos made by me during the month I am startled.
History is going my way. In my October 27 column I predicted that Harriet Miers's ill-conceived nomination to the high court would be withdrawn owing to the White House's perfectly sensible reluctance to allow the snoops of the Senate to see documents relating to her work as White House counsel. Whamo! By the next day she was withdrawing for that very reason.
