WHISPER CAMPAIGN Via Andrew Sullivan, here's James Dobson's take on Miers:
We welcome the president's nomination of Harriet Miers to the U.S. Supreme Court. He pledged emphatically during his campaign to appoint judges who will interpret the law rather than create it. He also promised to select competent judges who will 'not use the bench to write social policy.' To this point, President Bush's appointments to the federal bench appear to have been remarkably consistent with that stated philosophy. Based on the information known generally about Harriet Miers, and President Bush's personal knowledge of her, we believe that she will not prove to be a lone exception.
What does Dobson know that the rest of us don't?

UPDATE:Dobson revises and extends:

"Some of what I know I am not at liberty to talk about," [Dobson] said in an interview, explaining his decision to speak out in support of Ms. Miers. He declined to discuss his conversations with the White House.
