As Harriet Miers' chances at chances at confirmation to the Supreme Court seemed to dwindle, Bush has thought to save face by nominating her as Chair of the Federal Reserve Board. Bush said he had never talked to her about her views on hot button issues like inflation or interest rates because "that sort of thing is really boring."
Critics cited her lack of experience or education in economics. Bush retorted that she had substantial experience as head of the Texas Lottery Commission. Additionally, Bush added, "She's got a great personality."
Democrats have already vowed that Miers confirmation hearings will be tedious and sparsely attended.
