No Floridian

Well, we didn't get a Floridian. We got Harriet Miers. No one knows much about her yet. She's Bush's lawyer at the White House. She's never been a judge. She was charged with finding O'Connor's replacement. I guess she said PICK ME!

UPDATE -- Some, like Tom Goldstein, are already predicting that she will not be confirmed. I tend to agree, especially because she will be compared to the super-smart, well-qualified Roberts, who was a no-brainer.

Is Miers the anti-Roberts?

If the information I have is correct, Ms Miers has 30 years or so of litigation experience, and no man with that kind of experience would be blown off as Ms Miers' candidacy has been. As a former president of the Dallas and Texas bars, she is of the ilk of Patricia Seitz, Edith Osman, and Kelly Overstreet Johnson: Would you think any of them are lightweights, or "underqualified"? I doubt it.

We are talking about the U.S. Supreme Court, right?
