Whew, now that Dobson told us what his insider information was, wow, I'm really feeling better about it.
"So, Karl Rove shared some of that with me. He also made it clear that the President was looking for a certain kind of candidate, namely a woman to replace Justice OíConnor. And you can imagine what that did to the short list. That cut it..."
"Well, what Karl told me is that some of those individuals took themselves off that list and they would not allow their names to be considered, because the process has become so vicious and so vitriolic and so bitter, that they didnít want to subject themselves or the members of their families to it."
Yeah, that makes me feel tons better.
