I'm hearing talk among conservative leaders that they now regret the fact that former solicitor general Ted Olson was not nominated to be Attorney General, and that many now believe Mukasey will be "Borked."

Mukasey was initially widely praised, but his comments regarding waterboarding may have sunk his chances of picking up the support of enough Dems.  Should his nomination be blocked, it would be a stunning turn of events.

More to come...
