Harriet Miers Thinks Experience is Important

Ms. Miers was appointed to the Texas Lottery Commission by then Governor George W. Bush on May 4, 1995. On March 21, 2000, she resigned her appointed position with the agency. This was her reason...

Ms. Miers said, "I believe it will be best if the Lottery has an experienced commissioner on board, rather than someone whose term expires February 2001, a person who has the time to become educated about the Lottery and is prepared to help lead this agency into the future."

Would it not then "be best" for the country if an experienced judge got the nod as Supreme Court Justice? Ms. Miers, will it take you five years to realize experience is as important on the Supreme Court as it was in the Texas State Lottery?

What? Bush nominated an experienced commissioner for the Supreme Court. I don't see what the problem is.

Well it just wouldn't do to nominate someone with experience. Otherwise, the nominee would have to actually answer some relevant questions.

She's stealthier than Souter. I don't think she's a great legal mind like John Roberts is. You elect a mediocre person, you get mediocre government.
