Sen. Salazar Says Miers Remains A ''Mystery Woman''

Washington (AP) Colorado Senator Ken Salazar says Supreme
Court nominee Harriet Miers remains a ''mystery woman.'' After spending nearly an hour meeting with Miers Thursday, the Democrat says he feels like he still needs more information about her and her views.

They talked about Miers' background, her family and her approach to the judiciary, but Salazar says he wanted more
substance.

Most senators, including Salazar, have said her lack of
experience on the bench does not concern them, but conservatives in particular have questioned Bush's claim that she is the most qualified candidate compared to proven conservative federal judges.

Colorado Senator Wayne Allard met with Miers earlier this week and he also hasn't decided whether to back her nomination.
