According to an article on and telecast on MSNBC, Senator Trent Lott (R-Miss) is voicing opposition to Bush's nominee to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Harriett Miers. According to the article:
“There are a lot more people — men, women and minorities — that are more qualified in my opinion by their experience than she is,” said Sen. Trent Lott, R-Miss., formerly the Senate Majority leader. Lott said it’s not enough for the president to say “trust me” when it comes to the Supreme Court. “I don’t just automatically salute or take a deep bow anytime a nominee is sent up,” Lott told MSNBC. “I have to find out who these people are, and right now, I’m not satisfied with what I know.”
Confirmation hearings for Harriett Miers could begin as early as November 7, 2005. ===== You know, I always had the impression that Senator Lott was nothing more than an unltra-conservative, religiously radical, anti-gay, homophobic Republican. Wow. Guess I was wrong. Senator Lott is actually doing something I agree with... taking caution on Bush's pick for the Court.
