Is Miers worth it?

An imaginary scene from l’affaire Miers just ran through my head. Several senators go visit President Bush in the White House and say, “Mr. President, you must withdraw Miers to avoid a disaster.” He outright refuses, and one of the senators says, “Mr. President, Paris was worth a mass. Is Harriet Miers worth your presidency?”

The analogy seems odd. Yet it captures the weird fact that Bush evidently cares more about this one insignificant person, and the utterly undeserved promotion he wishes to give her, than he cares about his whole presidency.
