Miers "Humbled" by Nomination

Ms. Harriet Miers, White House counsel, said she was "humbled" by the President's nomination of her to the nation's highest court. Miers, who was a math major, will, if confirmed, by a first time jurist. While an unidentified source foresaw "heavy lifting" to ensure that she will take office, this move will undoubatbly be welcomed by GOP moderates, including Snowe and Collins, and J Committee chairman Arlen Specter, who have agitated for a female nominee.
Ms. Miers had been then governor Bush's personal lawyer, and has served as his staff secretary and deputy chief of staff for policy, in addition to her current capacity. She was once deputy chairwoman of the Texas lottery. She is an alum of Southern Methodist University and cut her teeth, like many members of the legal elite, as a federal court clerk. She has held elected office only once,serving one term on the Dallas city council. Miers is unmarried.
