John Fund on Miers

John Fund's write up on Opinion Journal.com's Political Diary reiterates some points that I posted earlier this week after conversations with some people who I promised not to name:

He calls Ms. Miers is a "very good moral person," but says her real skills at the firm were networking and climbing the rungs of the local and state bar association hierarchy. She rarely tried cases and most of her work for corporations was to serve as the local counsel for out-of-state companies that needed someone familiar with local Dallas judges.

As for her political views, Mr. Packard said Ms. Miers rarely tipped her hand. "It's fair to say that Harriet finds abortion truly abhorrent, but on all other gender issues such as affirmative action you would find her socially very liberal,"
