Volokh seems to be gathering most of the information about Miers. She has Souter written all over her. The lesson the Republican party should take from this is "no more Bush presidencies." Conservatives need to do a better job of not letting crappy candidates through the presidential primary.

In what appear to be some of her only public statements about a constitutional issue, Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers testified in a 1990 voting rights lawsuit that the Dallas City Council had too few black and Hispanic members, and that increasing minority representation should be a goal of any change in the city's political structure.
In the same testimony, Miers, then a member of the council, said she believed that the city should divest its South African financial holdings and work to boost economic development in poor and minority areas. She also said she "wouldn't belong to the Federalist Society" or other "politically charged" groups because they "seem to color your view one way or another."

Yes. Political power given rather than earned always makes for better citizenship.

She will fit in well with the future Gonsalez majority on the Court.
