Now.... seriously...

Harriet Miers for Supreme Court justice? If that ain't cronyism I don't know what is.

- Dallas City Council
- Private attorney (oh, that's right, a GWB private attorney!)
- Oversaw the Texas Lottery

Well... yea... I guess if I was Prez she'd be my next choice for Supreme Court Justice as well. Harriet finally won the lottery!

She is an ally to GWB and is being rewarded for that.She has no qualifications to serve on the high court.
She has no record on abortion but we can all guess what it is.
Damn right she won the lottery.

underestimate George again

If you can avoid a battle and win the war, why not.
America has been through a lot, why divide it farther. She will serve the purpose and not cause a problem with her nomination.

I am disappointed that he didn't pick a strongly conservative person, but if a liberal Democrat had made a similar choice I would hope I would be open minded about her.

Doesn't the Senate still need to approve the nomination before she's elected? That hardly constitutes as a qualified candidate.

She's a lawyer, what else does she need to be qualified? I would expect the president to appoint a justice that is like minded as he is. Clinton appointed an ACLU lawyer, big shock!

27 Supreme Court Judges had/have never been judges. She handled his personal issues, and he trusts' her judgement. That's all that matters. It's his appointment as the Prez, and he actually interviewed and polled 80 senators to see what they thought.

Oh... I'd say a little background (maybe 20 or so years) in Constitutional Law would be appropriate, hell maybe even some time on the bench as a judge.

Big shock, ACLU deals with Constitutional Law.

How many of those 27 Supremes have had actual experience with Constitutional Law? Or possibly served in the House or Senate before being appointed to the highest Court in the land? Or maybe worked for the USAGO before appointment?

So I guess that means that someone in Customer Service can have your job then right? I mean, they're qualified, aren't they?

None of this matters. It's his call, and we'll live with it. I am curious to see how the vote goes on this one. There was a VERY in-depth article on her in the DMN this morning.

I didn't retire or die. I am still working my job, but if someone can come in a do my job better then me for less than $65K a year, my boss should hire them. I could use the help. Maybe I won't have to work every other weekend.

Quit dodging the point and answer the question numbnuts. Does someone who works in Customer Service make them qualified to do your job?

65k a year? I should make 65k a year dammit. Right now I'm working 5 on, 1 off, 12 hour shifts. I'm not complaining though, the days go by quick.

I don't necessarily agree with Bush's decision in choosing her, but it's his choice and like someone else said, we'll have to live with it.

What are the qualifications that are stipulated in the constitution to be a supreme court justice?
