Hillary on the Supreme Court?

Just a suggestion, if she doesn't want to continue in the Senate, (and assuming Barack wins the 2008 election) why not appoint Hillary Clinton to the Supreme Court?

It's an incredibly influential job she can have for life, she can replace one of the current moderate judges who are getting up there in years, and - most importantly - act as a major counterbalance to the right-wing wackjobs on the Court like Scalia, Thomas or Roberts.

Contrary to popular belief, you don't actually have to have been serving as a judge to be appointed a SC Justice. Usually they are, but it's not a requirement. A president can nominate anyone he wants. And Hillary probably knows more about the laws of the land than anyone out there.

It won't happen. I don't think he would nominate her and even if he did I bet the senate wouldn't vote for her!

Whatever - she has to get out of the race now.
