Dubya's newest supreme court nominee

Yesterday, Bush nominated his own White House Counsel as a nominee for the second open seat on the U.S. Supreme Court in 2005.

What is known of Harriet Miers though? A quick look here will tell you that her career has been a range of everything from a lawyer to head of the lottery commission in Texas.

As assumed, she is truly a member of Bush's inner circle. She spent time in 1994 working on his governor campaign in Texas and has held a job in some way, shape or form in the White House since Bush took over the presidency in 2000.

Finally, in the quote at the bottom of the page linked above, she appears to be one of the most devout boot-lickers yet. Michael Brown and John Roberts now have some FIERCE competiton in that department.
