Harriet Who? and why?

It is Deja Vu all over again. Cheney was in charge of Bush’s search committee for a VP. Bush chose Cheney. Harriet Miers was in charge of the search committee for a Supreme Court Justice to replace Sandra Day O’Conner. Bush chose Harriet. As more and more time goes on, I have to ask is Harriet Miers the best person for the job? I’m not saying that she isn’t a bright, hard working attorney. But that’s not the issue. Is she the best qualified attorney? Roberts, everyone states is one of the brightest bulbs in the box but Ms. Miers is different. She didn’t go to Harvard. She didn’t clerk for a Supreme Court judge. As far as I know she didn’t try any cases in front of the Supreme Court. I don’t think that President Bush should throw just any female attorney at us and expect us to thank him. She has to earn it. On the job training isn’t an option in my book.
