that leads to the question why didn't Bush nominate a conservative the first time around. So many people said he wanted to avoid a fight.
I think he wanted someone whom he personally knew and trusted. I'm sure he thought she was a strong conservative, but he should have realized/been advised how weak nominating his own lawyer, not a judge, to the SC would look!

Yes but I think he was getting the wrong advice altogether. After Katrina and others the "advisors" IMO thought Bush needed the democrats more then HE needed to keep his promise on the SC. With the 1992 tax increase and now Miers I think America are finally starting to hold their elected leaders accountable. It will be interesting to see in the 08 election what promises they make.
