Is Meirs the ultimate stealth nominee?

On December 5, 2004, Rena Pederson, editor at large of the Dallas Morning News, wrote about Miers:

  • One legal lion once observed that she had gotten ahead in the male-dominated profession precisely because she wasn't a feminist, then he paused to reconsider and mused, "Maybe she is a feminist, I don't know."
  • That's not surprising - Ms. Miers is so adept at keeping her personal views to herself that when she ran for City Council in 1989, few knew whether she was a Republican or a Democrat, liberal or conservative.
