Miers a stealth candidate?
By Tom Smith

One theory floating around is that Miers was on the list Senate Democrats gave to W of "acceptable" candidates, and that W seized the chance to put an evangelical Christian on the highest bench. According to this view, Miers interprets the Bible and the Constitution the same way, literally and by what she sees as the original meaning. The Dems would not know this, not being tied into the Bible club. So by this clever Bush account, he is hoodwinking them into buying a strong religiously-motivated conservative. I'm skeptical.
