Like many I suppose, I am surprised at President Bush's nomination for Supreme Court Justice. We were frequently told during the presidential campaign that experience matters, and yet here is a nominee who has no judicial experience whatsoever, nor does she seem to have a background I can find on constitutional law.

It is said she will be a strict interpreter of the constitution, but what can that mean given no real experience arguing or hearing cases based on our constitution?

I would like to see a woman appointed to the Court, but surely it's an insult to women if the nominee is qualified only because she is a woman.

Experience and education matter, Mr. Bush? Your actions suggest otherwise, and it seems more important whom you know.


By the way, she's a Panther . . . Hillcrest class of 1963.

Wow, who would have thought that? I'm still glad she's out of the running though.
