Bush Judicial Nominees Ask to Withdraw

William Haynes, William G. Myers III and Terrence Boyle had all decided to abandon their quest for confirmation. Another nominee, Michael Wallace, let it be known last month that he, too, had asked Bush to withdraw his nomination.
Sen. Patrick Leahy says only consensus nominees have a chance of being confirmed.
