    :: Saturday, January 06, 2007 ::
    White House Counsel Harriet Miers resigns. Well of course. Someone whose legal practice consisted mainly of attending friendly bar meetings would be out of her, um, milieu in the atmosphere of camera-ready smackmouth "hearings" and "investigations" that the new Congress is cooking up. In all justice to Ms. Miers, if you'll excuse the expression, OWHC under her leadership was one of the smoothest-functioning units in this White House. But the next two years will take more than efficiency.

    According to this, the hunt is on for a seasoned Washington legal hand with the right combination of diplomacy, cojones, and clueyness about the boundaries of congressional and executive privilege. In addition to the excellent suggestions floated by NY Times -- Fred Fielding, Chuck Cooper, Larry Silberman -- I have another to suggest: Robert J. Cynkar, formerly a high-ranker in DOJ's Civil Division under Reagan, and a crack Washington litigator who can sue your pancreas right out of your torso while maintaining utmost civility.
