Reluctant? CNN Knows

This from my CNN breaking news e-mail: “President Bush ‘reluctantly’ accepts Supreme Court nominee Harriet
Miers’s request to withdraw her nomination.”

What’s with the quotation marks? Now the media is into divining the President’s feelings? He may really be reluctant, but did he say so? Seriously…

On the other hand, as has been suggested here and other places, perhaps this nominee was only a ploy. What if this was a way to gauge the opposition? Nice one, Mr. President.
