As Time reports:
Lawmakers and staff contend that during her first round of courtesy calls, Miers had anything but a commanding presence, looking more like a prom date next to the confident Senators. Republicans said she seemed unwilling or unable to answer questions about whether she viewed particular cases as important precedents and said she offered little beyond banal chatter.
Swell. I'm as much in favor of appointing an experienced practitioner to the Court as anyone, but a nominee should at least know the basics of constitutional law.
