This, To You, Is Reassuring?

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House lawyer Harriet Miers told a Democratic senator on Monday no one knows how she would vote on abortion if confirmed to the Supreme Court after a published report suggested she favored outlawing it.

Emerging from a closed-door meeting with Miers, Sen. Charles Schumer of New York told reporters that Miers told him she had not shared her views on the court's landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion.

"She said, 'Nobody knows my views on Roe v. Wade," Schumer said. "She said, 'No one can speak for me on Roe v. Wade."
Okay, how about you speak for you on abortion? Isn't that how it's supposed to go?
