  •  Paperwork (none)
    I was given to understand that she spent a lot of time in the White House on their legal team. She ought to have a lot of paperwork. She ought to know something about all the issues of the day: the Plame affair, the run up to the war in Iraq, Guantanamo, legal opinions on keeping prisoners without access to legal counsel, whatever. At least she ought to have an opinion on them.

    Just because she wasn't a judge doesn't mean she has no history!

    •  Confidentiality.... (none)
      That's the line we're going to hear.  I think they need to ask her about ALL of those issues.  She must have advised the Administration on each of those matters, but I'll bet she "can't answer" due to confidentiality or privelege or whatever the actual term is....  

      I think it's a brilliant strategy on the Administrations part.  Nominate someone that no one knows about and can't talk about her work because of confidentiality.  Although, since the White House is the People's House I think we could just agree to let her talk.... smirk!  I think they want the Dems to protest her so they can go nuclear then they can put in someone they really like.

      Who will spin the spinners?
