[Sen. Chuck Schumer] reported that Miers told him "no one knows how I would rule on Roe v. Wade." He said the nominee wouldn't talk specifics with him about important cases.

Playing the avuncular law professor, he added: "I'm going to give her a break. She is not a constitutional lawyer ... but she clearly needs some time to learn about these cases."She says she needs time to "bone up" on key Supreme Court precedents? These are not reassuring words.
