As you may or may not have heard, President Bush has nominated White House Counsel Harriet Miers for a seat on the Supreme Court of the United States. Many people have expressed concern that she shows no sign of the exceptional legal ability that a Supreme Court Justice should have, instead receiving the nomination because she is a female and she has a close relationship with the President. People on both the left and the right rate her below a replacement level Supreme Court Justice. Personally, I don't see what all the fuss is about. Whatever expertise she is lacking, she can easily make up for by surrounding herself with talented law clerks.
