Estrada withdraws

Miguel Estrada, the eminently qualified Bush nominee for the DC appeals court, has withdrawn his name for consideration for the post.

The Democrats have won this round; they managed to successfully demagogue and obfuscate the issue (and willfully abuse the filibuster process) for over two years now, and Estrada has had enough. However, they may have lost the war, as the GOP will now feel free to do the same thing to any and all Democratic nominees who fail GOP litmus tests, such as school choice, Second Amendment issues, environmental extremism, and so forth. What goes around, comes around.
