When W says that he never talked with Harriet Miers about her views on abortion, do you believe him? I do. Why he doesn't need to is a better question: Becuase he "knows her heart." We can thus assume that she is of the same mind, no?
In the few clips I have been able to listen to during the W's press briefing (not yet on line with the text last I checked), I have one question: How is it that a person can expect another to not change over the course of twenty years? W expects that here Miers' judicial philosophy won't change, but like the W, Rove and Co. are unable and unwilling to discuss possible cases that the court may hear, how could the W know what Ms. Miers will be like in 20 years?
Certainly, her experience, if appointed will change her. Moreover, we should all ask ourselves. Are we the same people we were twenty years ago? Nope. Is it time to start trusting this president? I don't think so. The reasons not to are many.
