News Story of the Week

Comments on “The President’s ‘Pit Bull’” by Richard A Serrano and Scott Gold in the Los Angeles Times on October 4, 2005

On Monday, when the announcement of Harriet Miers as the nominee to the Supreme Court, there was little information available about her from the news outlets. With the few amount of writings she has, and the fact that she was not a judge, makes it even more difficult to figure out what her presence will do on the high court. However, I feel that this article from the times was successful in taking the sparse information available on Miers and putting it together in a coherent article. The most helpful part of this article was that the relationship between Miers and President Bush was made clear. With this, it is much easier for me to start analyzing what effect she will have on the court.
