Hillary Clinton on list for Supreme Court nod

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton on the Supreme Court?

Don’t laugh. Sen Orrin Hatch of Utah says he’s heard the Secretary of State’s name mentioned as a potential nominee to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens.

“I heard Sen. Hillary Clinton’s name today and that would be an interesting person in the mix,” Hatch said on the “Today” show.

Hatch says that while he “likes” Clinton, he’s not sure he would support her for the court.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, appeared with Hatch on the morning news program and said he would support Clinton, adding “I think she’s done a good job for the country” as Secretary of State.

    Wow, if the Democrats want to be unceremoniously tossed out of the country on their asses, I say go for it. But of course, any one that opposes her would be portrayed as not only a racist but a sexist too – double whammy! 2008 all over again. What a glorious time to be alive.

      Griff,

      I know you keep a fresh stock of popcorn and prozac. Hope you don’t mind sharing.

    For a number of years I’ve had a personal commitment to expose all the tawdry details concerning the Clinton’s during their days in power in Arkansas, but I’ve finally resigned myself to the fact that they are anointed one’s courtesy of the “Kingmaker” H.W. Bush; ie., Mr. CIA as a function of their involvement as “team players” to facilitate “Iran Contra” during the Reagan/H.W. Bush presidency.

    The Supreme Court will be a good place for her to age with dignity.

    I personally believe we’re toast as a nation so we could have nine monkeys from the National Zoo all made of brass sitting on the bench and do equally or better relative to the Supreme’s record to date at least in the modern era.

    Hopefully all her ‘legal skills’ learned during her tenure at the Rose Law Firm in Arkansas will allow her to hammer out sterling briefs. / : |

    Will she need to check with the CFR first before each ruling?
