O grau desta polémica não pára de subir, e o número de artigos de opinião publicados em jornais americanos sobre Miers atingiu números impressionantes. A preocupação neste tema é tão grande que as estratégias para impedirem Harriet Miers de atingir o Supremo, estão a tomar caminhos no mínimo inéditos:
Some of the advocacy groups that are concerned about Supreme Court nominee Harriet E. Miers's lack of a record on social issues are favoring a new approach to thwarting her nomination: Asking the nominee, who has no judicial experience, complex questions about constitutional law and hoping she trips up.
'We are trying to establish that there are thousands of questions that law students routinely deal with . . . and if she can't get to that level, it doesn't matter if you're for the left or the right, at that point it's a fait accompli that she is not fit for the office," said Eugene DelGaudio, president of Public Advocate, a conservative profamily group.
