The Selling of Harriet Miers, Part IV:
The latest White House strategy, from the Associated Press:
  Stunned by conservative opposition to Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers, President Bush next week will bring in former justices from her home state of Texas to trumpet her qualifications for the nation's highest court.
  The event is part of an administration effort to refine its push for Miers after its initial strategy failed to quiet opposition from members of the president's own party.
  Well, this should be interesting. Thanks to Howard for the link.

Wow, that's going to set a record for world's shortest press conference.

Presumably, people stopped treating Hecht's comments seriously when they realized his primary qualification to comment on miers wasn't his position on the Texas Supreme Court, but rather, his position as her (presumably former) boyfriend.

This has reached the point where it's almost embarrassing. The only people who seem happy are democrats and people getting paid by the White House.

What does that make Hewitt and Medved, I wonder.

Yes! This will really convince everyone that she is the best possible candidate for the Supreme Court. What will they talk about, her Evangelical religious beliefs, her moral and ethical values?

Minimally, I would hope that the 3 former Justices will tell us exactly how many appeals Miers argued to the Tex SC while they were on it.

btw, understand 2 of 3 are Dems

If they are really convincing, I am willing to entertain the notion that she is qualified for a position on the Texas Supreme Court.
