My Stand on Miers

This post is an answer to N.Z. Bear’s call for blogger’s positions on Harriet Miers.

I oppose the Miers nomination.

She’s not qualified for the job. I’d much prefer a constitutional expert, with or without bench experience, or an experienced judge. My opinion is irrespective of her opinions regarding santity of life, homosexual marriage, etc. A competent interpreter is more important to me than a judge who thinks Roe V. Wade should be overturned (or at least given tighter parameters).

    Out of my own curiosity, why would you prefer someone who opposes your views, but has more experience?

    I’m not a constitutional lawyer. I could be wrong in my beliefs. If Roe. v. Wade was rightly decided, then we should be working on a constitutional amendment rather than spinning our wheels hoping for the decision to be overturned.
