What a weird choice. In the aftermath of Katrina where the whole nation received a lesson on the dangers of cronyism, and then the President has picked the current WH counsel to be on the Supreme Court. White House counsel is the President's own lawyer. That's how she got this job. She knew the President and the President knew her. That's the only reason that she got this gig. There is nothing in her resume that to suggest that she is ready to serve on the highest court in the land. You could close your eyes throw a rock and hit one of hundreds, if not thousands of lawyers in DC that have a resume just like hers. The only thing special about Miers is that she's buddies with the President.
