Obama says ‘nada’ to Clinton for Supreme Court

President Barack Obama‘s White House moved quickly Monday to quash speculation that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could be his latest nominee the Supreme Court.

“The President thinks Secretary Clinton is doing an excellent job as Secretary of State and wants her to remain in that position,” White House Spokesman Ben LaBolt told The Washington Post.

Clinton’s name surfaced on the news talk show circuit when Senators Orin Hatch and Patrick Leahey said they had heard Clinton was under consideration to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens.

White House sources say Obama never even considered Clinton for the Supreme Court job, a move that some see as a slap in the face for his Secretary of State and opponent for the Democratic nomination for President in the bitter 2008 primary campaign.

    Nice Zieg Heil, Mrs. Clinton. I think you’d look better in brown, with red armbands.

      Hey, you better be nice to her! With the approval ratings that she now has, she could very well be the next President.
