Conservatives Can Trust In MiersFrom The Baltimore Sun

He unabashedly ran as a conservative in the election ...

After 9/11, President Bush resisted the prevailing wisdom in Washington that terrorism should be dealt with as a crime, instead treating the attacks as acts of war that required a military response. ...

In both of his presidential campaigns, Mr. Bush stated his intention to nominate judges who "will faithfully interpret the law and not legislate from the bench." ...

Mr. Bush's pick of John G. Roberts Jr. to be chief justice reflected this philosophy. ...

At the nomination news conference, Ms. Miers' first remarks were reassuring in this regard: "It is the responsibility of every generation to be true to the founders' vision of the proper role of the courts and our society." She promised to "strictly apply the laws and the Constitution."
Conservatives should also be confident that Ms. Miers has the tenacity to remain committed to these principles while under the pressures and scrutiny of the nation's highest court. As the leader of the Texas Bar Association, she proved to be a very effective leader opposing the American Bar Association's official stance in support of abortion ...

Despite divisions within the Texas bar about the practice of abortion, Ms. Miers was able to get unanimous support from all members in her campaign to urge the ABA to move away from a position of outright support. ...

Ms. Miers' dedication in that struggle shows that she is deeply committed to the conservative ideal that the people themselves ...
In addition, Ms. Miers brings an important type of diversity to the bench: diversity of experience. ...

And perhaps most important, Mr. Bush has worked closely with Ms. Miers every day since his days as governor. The president knows her and knows what kind of justice she will make. ...
With the president's knowledge of Ms. Miers, his stated commitment to rebalancing the judiciary and his conservative record - not only in appointing judges but on big decisions in general - conservatives should feel comfortable in taking the president at his word that he has just now delivered another nominee in that tradition.
