Harriet Miers, Bush’s next pick for the Supreme Court, is currently White House Counsel and once served as Bush’s personal lawyer. She has never been a judge. But what she lacks in experience she makes up for in devotion. Here is what the National Review’s David Frum had to say about Miers last week:
In the White House that hero worshipped the president, Miers was distinguished by the intensity of her zeal: She once told me that the president was the most brilliant man she had ever met.
Frum concluded, “This is no time for the president to indulge his loyalty to his friends.” Looks like he was wrong.
