The White House, intent on getting people talking about something besides Harriet Miers’s clothes, religion, and cardiac fitness, brought up six former Texas State Supreme Court judges yesterday to chat with president and to give the press corps some insight on to the keen legal mind of Ms. Miers.

High praise indeed, though we wonder what Hill believes to be even the potential risks for his wife in Harriet’s presence. Sure, we can hear it now: “Why, Mrs. Hill, you’re just the greatest judge’s wife ever….”
