    Not sure what you mean about why SHE wouldn't call for blood. She's trying to get on the court. It's the right-wing nuts who wanted blood. Listen to some AM radio (if you can stand it) and you'll see what I mean.

    If the Republicans stay in power much longer, An Army of One isn't going to be just a slogan.

      you said that the Right wanted blood. Scalia in a dress would surely invoke anger among the Dems and the left. We simply don't know enough yet to know that she's Scalia in a dress. All guesswork aside.

      •  Don't you get it?! (none)
        Knowing how petty Bush is, do you honestly think that Bush's inner circle would accept anyone with even a trace of liberal beliefs?  Because that's exactly where she's coming from.
        •  And so (none)
          for you, she is merely a Scalia in a dress and not a living, breathing human being with a distinct identity? How would your views of Miers differ from, for example, a nominated rock? Is there a difference in your mind?

      •  We seem to be getting wires crossed here. (none)
        When she's on the court, she will almost certainly vote like Scalia does. That's what I meant. But she's not going to advertise that fact now. And the rank-and-file right DOES want blood. The White House didn't give them what they want, well-established ultra-conservatives -- Edith Jones, Priscilla Owen, Michael Luttig.

          again, how does your opinion of Miers differ from, say, a rock that has been nominated? Would you say this regardless of who Bush picked? Does it matter in the least who the person in question is?

          •  Neither of us can read minds. (none)
            My opinion of the nominee, Miers, is based on my opinion of the people behind her nomination. If you want to hold out hope that she will be another Souter, by all means, be my guest. Anything's possible.

              it's a simple Scalia/Souter binary. Yet, I'm not going to presume anything until more of her history is revealed and she answers questions regarding judicial restraint, judicial precedent and privacy rights.

        a Clarence Thomas sent in to rubber stamp whatever Scalia directs. Anyone who thinks bush is brillant is not the brightest bulb in the pack.

          and what is your basis for this opinion?
