    Thurgood Marshall was a successful advocate before the Supreme Court and an appellate judge. He had loads of experience on constitutional issues. Granted, he did not go to one of the top law schools, but given the state of race relations at that time, that's one I have to give him a pass on.

    Harriet Miers, in contrast, went to a second rate law school, did not make law review, did not get an appellate clerkship, and never argued before the Supreme Court. What on earth makes her qualified to suddenly become one of the nine people who decide what the Constitution means?
