Here's a bit of speculation my dad hit me with when I talked to him on the phone over the weekend: Sandra Day O'Connor was often the tie-breaking vote in favor of corporations and against small government. Bush needed to replace her with someone similarly corporation-friendly. Ergo, former corporate lawyer Harriet Miers. My dad cited a Wall Street Journal article six months ago predicting such a pick for support. This is comming from a man with solid RINO credentials, he still supports Republicans at the state level. No idea if it's right, but I'm hoping someone will see this and have something to add.
