At a campaign stop in Deocorah, Iowa, yesterday, Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton was asked her thoughts on the idea of nominating President Barack Obama for the U.S. Supreme Court.
Clinton was quite bullish about the proposition.
Via ABC News:
“Wow, what a great idea. No one has ever suggested that to me, I love that, wow,” the Democratic presidential candidate responded. “He may have a few other things to do but I tell you that’s a great idea.”
Clinton went on to talk about how the next president could have to appoint up to three Supreme Court justices, but she then circled back.
“I would certainly take that under advisement,” she told the crowd of 450 people inside a ballroom at the Winn Hotel about a potential Justice Obama. “I mean he’s brilliant, and he can set forth an argument, and he was a law professor, so he’s got all the credentials.”
