>From tomorrow's NYTimes:
"She is someone that the president for the last five years has looked
to for her recommendation when it comes to dealing with complex legal
issues involving our Constitution," Mr. McClellan said, referring to Ms.
Miers's tenure as White House counsel and legal adviser. "And she is
well versed in constitutional law. You have to be, when you serve at the
highest levels of government."
Query: Will the White House disclose some--all-- of her recommendations
over the past years "when it comes to dealing with complex legal issues
involving our Constitution," such as, say, torture? Or will they claim
Executive Privilege or lawyer-client privilege, which means that Scott
McClellan's assurances will be unverifiable?
