||I have no clue. What I do know is that if Harry Reid and Charles Schummer think that she is a good choice, then she is a bad choice. She seems educated enough, and the fact that she is not a judge does not bother me.
Why is Bush being such milquetoast with this pick? Roberts was ok, conservative sure, but safe. This pick should have but a conservative fireball, not someone who legislates from the bench, which is counter to the idea of an originalist. Someone who will uphold the Constitution.
With this choice, Bush has pissed off conservatives and pissed off hispanics. There were plenty of quality choices out there, but he pulls this one out of his ass which smacks of cronieism and capitulating to the Democrats. Let's be honest, Bush does not owe the democrats anything, but he should have given the nomination to any of the highly qualified conservative hispanic attorneys or judges.
We know nothing on Miers, and that troubles me. The only stance I could find that she took was to request that the ABA change their stance on Abortion. Other than that, this is a scary choice that could backfire or be a huge victory.
I would rather have better odds. Putting the Supreme Court in the balance is like betting your life savings on one number at the roulette table. It is not worth the risk.
