Marvin Olasky over at World Magazine's World Views Blog has posted a series of items (here, here, here, here, here, here and here) on Harriet Miers, President Bush's nominee to replace Sandra Day O'Connor on the U.S. Supreme Court. Dr. Olasky has spoken with Nathan Hecht, a Texas Supreme Court justice and a close friend of Miers; an unnamed conservative lawyer from Texas; and Miers' pastor, Ron Key.
Here are a few snippets from Dr. Olasky's posts: . . .
Nathan Hecht: "She's an orginalist -- that's the way she takes the Bible," and that's her approach to the Constitution as well -- "Originalist -- it means what it says."
Unnamed lawyer: "Harriet could have become a conservative in Washington, but unless she did, she doesn't have any particular judicial philosophy . . . I never heard her take a position on anything . . . We'll have another Sandra Day O'Connor."
Ron Key: "She came to a place where she totally committed her life to Jesus. She had gone to church before, but when she came to our church it became more serious to her."
