Will Bush pull another Cheney?
Remember when Bush pulled a fast one in 2000, when he asked Dick Cheney, who was running the search for a suitable running mate, to be that running mate? Rumors are swirling in Washington that Bush is going to pull that stunt again, with Harriet Miers. Miers is Bush's former personal lawyer, and current White House council, who is currently in charge of vetting possible successors for Justice O'Connor.
This is definitely intriguing. If you asked me to put money on it, I'd say he avoids the slight controversy it would case and picks someone with more judicial experience, like Consuelo Callahan or Edith Clement.
