From yesterday's press conference about nominee Harriett Miers: "THE PRESIDENT: Correct. And I'll say it again: There is no litmus test. Q But she is not someone you interviewed for the job that you didn't know. You've known her a long time. Have you never discussed abortion with her? THE PRESIDENT: In my interviews with any judge, I never ask their personal opinion on the subject of abortion. Q In your friendship with her, you've never discussed abortion? THE PRESIDENT: Not to my recollection have I ever sat down with her -- what I have done is understand the type of person she is and the type of judge she will be. " He's never discussed abortion with her? No way.
