Harriet Miers and Executive Privilege

I think there is way more to the nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, than
meets the eye.

Cronyism, certainly

A judicial/political tie breaker, you betcha.

Qualified, hardly

A deliberate maneuver to classify (cover-up ) sensitive presidential documents.............
that's my guess.

If Mr. Bush invokes executive privilege to classify documents and phone transcripts between himself
and Miers, his personal counsel, then my guess is that there is probably no more damning evidence anyone could find than these personal records between the president and his counsel when Bush & Co.
face impeachment proceedings.

So these records become classified preventing disclosure as part of HER supreme court nomination inquiry
protecting HER records, but more importantly protecting HIS A$$

That's my take

In United States v. Nixon, the Supreme Court ruled that executive privilege doesn't apply to documents relevant to impeachment hearings (of course there will never be any on Bush anyway, despite your hopes)

Nothing about Miers' nomination changes anything regarding these documents, I'm not sure what your point is...
