    Concerns about Miers persist

    Wednesday, October 5, 2005; 4:13 PM

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Concerns by conservative U.S. Senate Republicans about Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers persisted on Wednesday despite President George W. Bush's assurances that his White House counsel is the best person for the job.

    The President is being forced to argue to conservatives for Miss Miers's conservative reliability, a project which, to the extent it succeeds, will provoke opposition by Democrats.

    Otoh, he could have nominated someone who came with conservative pre-approval. That, too, would have provoked opposition by Democrats -- but at least the President would not have been forced to expend time and political capital just to achieve that opposition. I mean, never mind qualifications -- wouldn't this have been the better course just from a time-management point of view?
