The Miers nomination explained

From the AP:
The Supreme Court agreed Monday to consider a challenge to the Bush administration's military tribunals for foreign terror suspects, a major test of the government's wartime powers.

I suspect that this case, and others of this sort, had a strong influence on the nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court. Much more than her evangelical background and potential to overturn Roe v. Wade. This is what George W. Bush's legacy is going to be, the War on Terror, and if he has the Supreme Court stripping the executive branch of war powers, that's a bad thing...
