Bush Names Supreme Court Pick

"She has devoted her life to the rule of law and the cause of justice" George Bush said in announcing Harriet Miers (White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Policy) as his choice to fill Sandra Day O'Connor's slot on the Supreme Court. Nice words, but wouldn't they apply to pretty much anyone who was at all qualified for the position? I'm sure, just as with the John Roberts nomination, we'll be beaten over the head with how well-qualified she is to serve on the Supreme Court (a criterion that I would guess should make thousands eligible for the gig), and nothing about why she is the best choice, other than that she's Bush's choice. Among her other achievements, she's a past chair of the Texas Lottery Commission.
