Check out what FOX Fans are saying:

"How does someone who has never been a Judge, get nominated to be one of the Highest Ruling Judges in the Country?" — Matt

"I am concerned that President Bush has nominated someone with no experience as a judge to the highest court in the nation. It tracks with his own inexperience when he became president, and we see the disastrous result from that." — Z.V.

"It appears that her primary qualification for the job is that she is a Bush 'loyalist.' When you consider how well his choices for FEMA director and Secretary of Defense worked out (just to name a few), I don’t have much faith that she is capable of performing the job. The president’s choices for the Supreme Court are curious. One choice is highly capable, while the other is much less so." — Gil (Tacoma, WA)

"I believe that President Bush has made another excellent choice for the Supreme Court." — Vince (Frazer, PA)

"Bring her on! We need the brass up there. Great pick." — Bill

"As far as I can tell, she seems to be a fairly good candidate. I agree with others who are concerned that it might have been better to have nominated a minority; maybe a Hispanic or African-American woman. I guess all we can do is wait and see. I trust Bush. Evidently he sees something in her that the rest of us don't. I just hope that she is more conservative when it comes to controversial topics." — Laura (Kansas)

"I am for the first time deeply disappointed in President Bush. My hope of hopes was for a staunch conservative in the Supreme Court who would fight hard against abortion. I think this woman seems nice but, I doubt she could go against a fashion trend, never mind abortion." — Mrs. Romano

"Bush has betrayed us once again." — James

"I don't like what I am hearing about Harriet Miers. It seems the Left is very happy with the choice. The president has made a mistake and energized his base in the wrong way. I'll be calling my Senators. We want another Scalia or Thomas, not another future liberal." — K.J.

"It really shouldn't matter who you have on the Supreme Court as long as they are following the law as they should. The problem on both sides is they want to stack the Supreme Court to each ideological side. You are always going to have some group somewhere that isn't happy. I say we vote out the senators and congressman who try to filibuster these issues. That’s the only way Washington and the partisan bickering will ever stop." — Barbara (Houston, TX)

"Great choice! I like her ability to bring a viewpoint other than that of a judge to the Court and I expect her to be a strict constructionist conservative." — Shella

"Don't know too much about her as of this point in time, but from what I do know I think she is a good choice." — Billy

"I think it is wise of the president to choose someone he knows well and is confident of. That way, he can refocus on the rest of his agenda including tax cuts and Social Security reform." — N. (Monrovia, CA)

"The president is either very clever and knows something we don't know, or he has blown the chance of a lifetime." — Duane (Lexington, NC)

"I trust President Bush and believe that this woman will prove to be a brilliant choice." — Devon (Albuquerque, NM)

"I would have preferred Janice Rogers Brown. There must be something the president knows that caused him to resist that nomination. Otherwise, it was a good choice." — David (Winter Garden, FL)

"At this time, I do not know much about Harriet Miers to make a judgment on her nomination to replace Sandra Day O’Connor on the Supreme Court. I do know this much, however: some conservatives are not happy about the selection. I prefer taking a wait and see attitude before I say that she is right person. My hope is that she is an original in the mold of a Thomas and Scalia. I pray that that is the case. If it is not, then I will join the chorus of those that are disappointed." — Alex (Kenilworth, NJ)

"I was very disappointed with Pres Bush's selection of Harriet Miers. I hoped he would nominate someone with a documented conservative record. Truth be told I would have really been happy if he had nominated a Hispanic conservative but I would have definitely supported any conservative male, female, black, brown or white. I feel Bush ran from the fight because he was intimidated by the Democratic Left. Why did you run and hide GW?" — Al

"I think the nomination of Harriet Miers is a slap in the face of conservatives. President Bush promised us judicial nominees in the mold of Scalia and Thomas, and Harriet Miers is who we get? I'm ticked!" — Marilyn

"I was alright with her this morning when I didn't know much about her. When I found out that voted for donated money to Gore, than I started to reconsider. She doesn't seem to be who Bush portrayed her. Hopefully the conservatives in the Senate will grill her like the Dems do someone that don't much care for. I'm not sure if I trust his judgment on this one." — Kaci (Russellville, AR)
