Miers also noted that when Sandra Day O’Connor announced in July her intention to retire, “I was asked whether my name should be considered. I indicated at that time that I did not want to be considered.” That stance, of course, changed following the September death of Chief Justice William Rehnquist. After initially participating in reviews of “potential nominees to fill a second vacancy,” Miers discovered “that individuals at the White House began considering me as a potential nominee without advising me.”
