ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the ongoing controversy surrounding U.S. President George W. Bush's nomination of White House counsel Harriet Miers to the U.S. Supreme Court. White House lawyers, who are charged with vetting the responses of Supreme Court nominees as they navigate through the nomination process, are at the moment distracted by other matters, including those related to the Federal response to Hurricane Katrina. Some White House officials are worried that Miers's rehearsals for her hearings are not proceeding smoothly. The task of answering questions from the Senate committee that will meeting regarding the nomination is complicated by the confidential nature of Miers's career with Bush.
