Conservatives fear Rove missed boat on Miers

Dallas Morning News | News for Dallas, Texas | Latest News: "Karl Rove has long had an eye for judges.

In Texas, President Bush's political guru was a central figure in moving the state Supreme Court from Democratic control to Republican, transforming the bench into a more conservative, business-friendly body. At the White House, he's been a fixture in helping choose federal judges, all the way to the Supreme Court.

This time, though, the selection of Harriet Miers has drawn stinging criticism from key conservative leaders, stirring rumblings that Mr. Rove has been distracted by mounting legal troubles and failed to foresee the ferocity of the resistance to her Supreme Court nomination.

So, now he's working overtime to quell the rebellion."
