More on Miers
Dallas Observer columnist Jim Schutze (previously identified here as "the Jill Stewart of Dallas") writes on Harriet Miers's record in Dallas politics. He has a funny lead:
Just about everybody who served or worked with Harriet Miers during her brief political career in Dallas remembers her as a hard-working, fair-minded moderate. When the Dallas political spectrum is properly framed against the national matrix, that means many people elsewhere will view her as a right-wing Christian nut case.
The article offers a nice roundup of what people who've worked with her on political issues say about Miers. Unfortunately, it tells us nothing about her judicial philosophy, assuming she has one beyond trying to be fair-minded.
