A Money Quote on the Miers Nomination
Miers, the first female president of the Texas Bar Association and a former private lawyer for Bush, has demonstrated her legal acumen in a career that has seen her become managing partner of a major law firm and the counsel to the president.Wow! The first female president of the Texas Bar Association and the managing partner of a major law firm? Really?!
Could it be possible that these are an indication of excellent organizational skills; An indicator of the ability to penetrate a hallowed "boys network"; Or the unflagging ability to suck up to the powerful?
Doesn't look to me like this has any bearing on her legal abilities. Though her one word responses to two-part questions in the Senate Judiciary Committee's questionnaire might. Duh!
