What Can I Say About Harriet Miers?

When people ask me what I think about the President's latest nomination for the Supreme Court, what can I say?

In 1988 Harriet Miers donated $1,000 to the Al Gore Jr. for President Committee - Ouch! That's not a good sign.

In 2000 she donated $5,000 to the Bush-Cheney recount fund - OK, now we're talking.

Eugene Delgaudio, president of the conservative group Public Advocate, thinks Miers is a terrible appointment, calling the nomination "a betrayal of the conservative, pro-family voters..." That concerns me.

Dr. James Dobson, chairman of Focus on the Family, is more positive,"We welcome the president's nomination of Harriet Miers to the U.S. Supreme Court." That makes me feel better.

Senate minority leader Harry Reid, D-NV, indicated that he likes Miers by stating, "I like Harriet Miers." That's worrisome.

Senate majority leader Bill Frist, R-TN, indicated that he likes Miers by stating, "Harriet is a nomination we are excited about." That's more encouraging.

Conservative strategist Manuel Miranda thinks Miers is unqualified - That's troubling.

MoveOn.org executive director Eli Pariser also thinks Miers is unqualified - That's reassuring.

So what do I say about Harriet Miers? I say let's not get too worked up. Be patient, pray, and have faith.

Bryan when you get a chance go to my blog and click on the site at the bottom of "The President's Pick." It takes you to an audio clip of an interview with harriet Mier's pastor which is very reassuring.

In case you weren't listening, Bryan, this post was quoted by 'Himself' today on the Peter Heck show. Yes, you have attained virtual stardom and now reside amidst the elites. Peter also mentioned the name of your blog. Your writing deserves the attention.

Thanks, Chris.
I was listening to Peter on the way home from work and was surprised to hear him read the post.
