This is perhaps the most interesting pro-Miers piece I've read. Of particular note are her financial contributions to pro-life candidates (including the Nebraska Attorney General who defended the state's partial birth abortion law in front of SCOTUS) and her writing on the Second Amendment. (She is also a past gun owner.)
I was truly shocked by the nomination, but am beginning to hope that the President might have outflanked the Democrats with a better outcome than initially seemed possible...maybe he really did figure he didn't need to have a barn-burning fight with an army of wobbly RINOs if he could get what he (and the "base") wanted with Harry Reid's blessing.
I have found the "stealth candidate" tactic disappointing in part as I think the "public conversation" about the proper roles of the judiciary and the Senate that might result from the appointment of someone like Edith Jones would be good for the country, and I also don't like that anyone who's taken a public stand on controversial issues seems to be excluded from being nominated. But I'm now feeling more optimistic that the long-term results, at least, will be positive.
