Bush refuses to hand over Miers documents / Nominee's chances for confirmation appear in jeopardy

This is strange. Apparently, both Democrats and Republicans are requesting documents to try and figure out where Harriet Miers stands on things. It's weird because when Democrats were requesting documents on Roberts, all I heard from Republicans and their supporters was that it was a partisan move just to delay the confirmation. But apparently, when Republicans want documents, there must be some higher moral purpose. I wonder how these hypocrites justify this kind of thing to their supporters. Oh, that's right, they don't have to, since they have all the with us or against us blind loyalty supporters on their side. Well, that must make things easier.

One possible explanation: The White House's refusal to provide documents gives it a fig leaf behind which to withdraw Miers' nomination, which is almost certainly in trouble. But that's just a guess; I have zero evidence to support it.
