Re: Gloomy and Demoralized

At about 6:30 this evening, a White House source called to say that whatever strategy that was discussed in “The Miers Support Team: Gloomy and Demoralized” was the thinking of a third-party group, and not of the White House. “The White House has not discussed changing the plans,” the source said. “It [the article] may represent what a third-party group thinks, but it is not representative of the mood or the strategic thinking of the White House. We were quite happy with the setting of a [hearing] date of November 7 yesterday, we feel like we’re moving forward, and that’s a very good thing.”
