I hear she's looking for work now. Miers was nominated by W a few years ago, but was shot down mostly by conservatives who were worried that her complete lack of any judicial record, gave us no evidence she'd be a law-abiding conservative instead of being another Souter. Though W swore up and down she'd be an excellent conservative, one who would rule according to what the Constitution actually says, his word was all we had, and that wasn't enough. There was nothing you could really get a handle on. Now, with Dems in a slight majority in the Senate, that lack of a record could actually work to Repubs' advantage. IF, of course, she really is a conservative who will obey the Constitution. That's still a big IF, we don't know any more about her now that we did then. But her total lack of a record also prevents Dems from pointing to anything in her background suggesting she might - horrors - rule that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided... or the McCain-Fiengold law case... or even US v. Miller. There's just no evidence there, either. IF she'd actually be a law-abiding judge as W says, the Dems would have a hard time shooting her down. Sure, I wish we had something more solid than that. But anything more solid, might just let the Dem majority eliminate a candidate completely. Miers might be the best thing we've got left, all in all. Comment?
