She's always fought for corporate rights over human rights. Harriet Miers has never been a judge.
John Roberts said little and wasn't really pressed before he sailed through to the dismay of millions of Americans. Now with Miers grinning with Sen. Harry Reid, the dem leader in the Senate, it appears she may as well. I hope other dems in the Senate, and even a few smart Republicans, will show some backbone and consider voting down Miers. Bush doesn't deserve everything he wants.
Sen. Reid with Miers LATThe LA Times today provides one of the best views so far of the mysterious Miers.
Does anyone really doubt that Roberts and Miers are anything but a right turn for an already right wing court? I don't think so, at least not the relatively few Americans who actually pay attention to national affairs.
Dem Senators Pat Leahy (VT) and Chuck Schumer (NY) will be key to asking the tough questions of Miers, and demanding full release of documents from the White House.
If they do their jobs, I predict they will decide to vote against her. People, if you care about your true freedoms in America, don't sit this one out.
