    won't necessarily reveal anything. She can stonewall just like Roberts. She has no "history" other than what we know about her personally:
    She's an "evangelical" Christian
    She's been described by two (at least) sources as one of Bush's "pioneers" (I'm not sure if that's with a capitol P, as in "major contributor to his campaign" - I don't think so -  or a pioneer in the sense of being amongst the RW legal avant-garde that's trying to stack the judiciary w/ hardcore RW-ers)
    She said Bush is the "most brilliant" man she's ever known (?!?)
    She was a corporate attorney-no big deal except when coupled with the above.

    When she gave her press conference yesterday, she was (I think) telegraphing to the HC RW that she's one of them, even if she has no "history".

    I don't know what (the Dems) can "do" about her...
    She seems to have 100% support from the GOP in Congress.
    I'm very worried about her and Roberts: Roberts is the Capitalist and Miers is the Fundie.
    (???)

    •  PS Why (none)
      would Bush nominate a known HCRWer who would cause a huge fight, when he can nominate a supposed "moderate" who will get approved, but who turns out to be a wingnut.
      Nobody can "prove" NOW what she or Roberts will do in the FUTURE one way or the other.
      That's why they were chosen.
