1 out of 3 Ain't Bad

From the White House press briefing:
MR. McCLELLAN: The President makes selections based on potential nominees' qualifications and experience and judicial temperament.

Since Harriet Miers has no judicial temperament (she's never been a judge) and her qualifications are pretty thin, that would suggest that the president relied pretty heavily on her experience.

One wonders if he means this in the classic grievance-group sense, i.e. "her experience as a woman," "her experience as a Christian," etc.

I'm still in a holding pattern until we hear her before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

You left coast elites make me sick! Give me a break! I guess JVL's response is appropriate, with "Chicken Little" opening soon. What is the goal here? To get a conservative justice. This is a done deal, IF you understand where she is every Sunday morning.
