Better late than never

Today's anonymously sourced New York Times drafting of White House counsel's Harriet Miers' resignation letter:

Mr. Bolten [chief of staff] is said by a number of Republicans in Washington to feel that Ms. Miers is indecisive, a weak manager and slow in moving vital paperwork through the system. She came to the White House in January 2001 as the staff secretary and then held one of Mr. Bolten's former jobs, deputy chief of staff for policy, before Mr. Bush appointed her as White House counsel in November 2004.

"Vital paperwork" like this?
