I'm Praying She's Luttig in a Dress
Harriett Miers. We know nothing about her. Yes, this raises the Souter concern.
I trust Bush to pick a serious strict constructionist, not just someone who appears to be that way. And he knows the importance of the appointment. I just pray he's not hedging to get her in easy. She looks pretty safe for confirmation, as a number of Democrats may have indicated that they feel she is fit. But that's just the concern.
These Dems want carbon copies of themselves. And it worries me a bit if we have someone that they like. But Ms. Miers is known personally to Bush. And perhaps he knows something they don't.
Which would be a good thing, as we know nothing.
Via Hugh Hewitt comes this very helpful series of posts from World Magazine. Miers is a born-again Christian. Certain to upset the Kennedys and Schumers, but does it translate into a conservative/originalist position?
Very hard to say.
