A Love That Was Benched by Their Careers

For those of you interested more in gossip than in jurisprudence, here is a interesting story from the Los Angeles Times concerning the relationship between nominee Harriet Miers and Justice Nathan Hecht of the Texas Supreme Court. Justice Hecht you might remember offered several quotes regarding his friend's nomination. Here is one: When the conservatives ''find out what this president knows about Harriet,'' he said, ''they are going to be happy as clams.'' Hecht also offered this quote about Ms. Miers in an article published last year: ''She always remembers everybody's birthday and has a present for them,'' he said. 'She'll be finding a present for them in the middle of the night. `Can't it wait until next week?' 'No,' she'd say. 'It has to be done now.' '' This is important. I don't have to tell you what happened at the Court last year when everyone forgot Justice Scalia's birthday.
