Miers tapped for high court

Dallas Morning News | News for Dallas, Texas | Latest News: "President Bush Monday named his long-time associate, White House counsel Harriet Miers of Dallas, to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Introducing her in a nationally televised announcement from the Oval Office, President Bush called Ms. Miers a legal pioneer, noting she was the first woman to be president of the Dallas Bar Association and the State Bar of Texas.

But Ms. Miers, who was a lawyer in private practice in Dallas, has no judicial experience, nor is much known about her views on the vast array of controversial issues that inevitably come before the high court."

Why should it matter that Miers has no judicial experience? She's been appointed by a President who's been in on-the-job training for 41/2 years and hasn't figured out the job yet.
