According to the website NeoConartist pointed me towards to get a glimmer of understanding about Iraq ( cheeky barsteward) her name is Harriet Miers:
Bush Nominates Harriet Miers
President Bush has chosen White House counsel Harriet Miers as his nominee for the United States Supreme Court to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. Ms. Miers has been leading the White House effort to help President Bush choose nominees to the Supreme Court.


sort of an insider then ?

It's certainly going to be interesting. She has no body of opinion or scholarship in order to try and guess her views. Looks like the press (left and right) and the Senate staffs are going to be rummaging through her trash by morning. What form she has indicates that she is pretty independent and doesn't seem to have any strong connections to the GOP apart from the personal connection to Bush (She was his lawyer before he became governor). It is by no means unprecedented for a Supreme Court Justice to have have had no previous experience on the bench. Some 40-odd (out of 109) Supreme Court Justices (including Rehnquist) have been appointed without such experience.

Personally, I think that if the American Taleban are taking time from their preparations for The Rapture in order to throw their teddies about because of her nomination and not David Frum (the guy that gave the world the 'Axis of Evil' tag line) surely things can't be all bad?
Hello everyone, I was searching the internet and stumbled across this thread, I'm not sure how old it is, BUT this is a picture of Us Senator Zell Miller.... Mild mannered politician, or sith lord? I'll you decide, and for the record, I photoshoped a picture of him over the Emperor himself, so you can see the similarties. Enjoy.
