D.C. is all atwitter about a possible vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court, what with the average age of the justices being 117. This piece on the behind-the-scenes campaigns offers this subtle Dallas connection:

At the White House, the plan is to run the campaign for Mr. Bush’s Supreme Court nominee out of the office of Harriet Miers, the low-profile White House counsel, once described by Mr. Bush as “a pit bull in Size 6 shoes.”

Miers is, among other things, a former member of the Dallas City Council, and Tracy Rowlett interviewed her for the magazine in the April issue.
