Harriet Miers served as White House Counsel under George W. Bush from 2004 to 2007. In 2005, despite never having served as a judge, she was nominated by President George W. Bush to replace retiring Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Sandra Day O'Connor. However, when conservative interest groups made their opposition to Ms. Miers clear, she was forced to withdraw her nomination. Bush went on to nominate Samuel Alito, whose nomination succeeded.
