Abuse Of Power: Hillary Clinton says appointing President Obama to the Supreme Court is a good idea. If it ever happens, he’ll be lauded as the perfect nominee. But he’d be far from it.
While campaigning earlier this week in Iowa, Clinton was asked what she thought of nominating Obama for a Supreme Court slot if she is elected. Politico reports that she “seemed delighted by the prospect.”
“I’ll tell you, that’s a great idea!” she said, adding that “no one has ever suggested that to me.”
Should she be elected and appoint Obama, he will be widely praised as the ideal person for the job because he was a “constitutional professor.” He’s been named one of “The 30 Most Influential Constitutional Law Professors,” and Clinton herself gushed that “he’s brilliant and he can set forth an argument and he was a law professor. He’s got all the credentials.” William H. Freivogel, director of the School of Journalism at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, wrote just after Obama was elected in 2008 that “few presidents in the past century have entered the Oval Office with such a developed and sophisticated understanding of the Constitution and the courts.”
Meanwhile, one of Obama’s worshipful millennial followers at something called the The Odyssey swears that “when it comes to constitutional and civil rights law President Obama knows his stuff” and “should become the next supreme court justice.” Obama has “a fantastic legal mind” — because this millennial says so.
But Obama was never a law professor. He was a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School who never published a single law paper.Read the rest of this IBD editorial HERE.
