The Case Of The Perfect Judicial Nominee

Republicans are ready to implode and the Democrats are in silent glee over the nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.

The GOP should just scrap the whole Miers nomination and start over.

Part of the discontent in the Republican Party is due to their lust for remaking the Court in their ideological viewpoint. Others clamored for Bush to appoint the first Latino to the Court, in addition to replacing Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's slot with another woman.

Why not Judge Marilyn Milian from the People's Court?

Sounds preposterous, but Milian has some surprising links to the administration and a far more accomplished record than Miers.

According to Milian's bio on The People's Court website, she has ties to Florida Governor, Jeb Bush; the younger brother of President Bush. Milian was appointed to the Miami Circuit Court in 1999 by Bush.

Milian would fit the search for both a woman and a Latino. She would also garner the support of Democrats, alike. Former Democratic Governor Lawton Chiles and former Attorney General under President Clinton, Janet Reno, both appointed her to posts.

Furthermore, Milian's record on the bench is far more accomplished than Miers whose judicial record is bare.

Bringing Rusty the Bailiff along as security would be a nice touch, too.
