Well .. it's now back in Whittemore's court - so I'm wondering if he is having second thoughts.
Since he's a Clinton appointee - maybe he doesn't want to be tainted as part of the Clinton legacy = killing Terri.
Secretary of Defense Cohen, Impeached Bill Clinton, Albright, and long-accepted CODE-level thief
and document destroyer National Security Adviser Sandy Berger,
holding court in the Ronald Reagan Building on April 25, 1999
The Impeached Bill Clinton: "We were all making comments
we shouldn't have about how the meeting was getting very boring.
So finally we decided we had to make like the monkey. Cohen
started this 'hear no evil,' and then I was next so I spoke no evil,
then Madeleine saw no evil, so Sandy Berger said, 'I'm evil.'"
Whittemore is probably on the phone as we write, getting his democrat instructions as to how to parse this newer material so that he can say, 'sorry, you don't have much of a chance to win so I'm going to refuse to review this case so admirably judged by our, er Florida's judge Greer'. This appointee is tasked with insulating the starvin' judge so the democrats don't risk being embarassed by a possible Terri Schiavo improvement with therapy.
He's a Klintoon appointee. It's doubtful he had a first thought.
