The Fall Of Harriet Miers: A Cautionary Tale For Dr. Ronny Jackson?

White House counsel Harriet Miers speaks after being nominated by President George W. Bush to the Supreme Court on Oct. 3, 2005. She would withdraw later that month after intense scrutiny of her qualificiations.

Both Miers, picked as a justice, and Jackson, chosen for the VA, were known for strong praise of the presidents they served and resumes with questionable alignment to the jobs they were picked for.
