Next Stop, Supreme Court?

by James Andrew Miller - May 21st, 2008 - Washington Post

It's likely that the next President will face at least one Supreme Court vacancy. Obama should promise Hillary Clinton, now, that if he wins in November, the vacancy will be hers, making her first on a list of one.

Obama and Clinton have wound up agreeing on nearly every major issue during the campaign; at the end of the day, they share many orthodoxies. Unless the Supreme Court were to get mired in minuscule details of what constitutes universal health care, Obama could assume that he'd be pleased with most Clinton votes, certainly on major issues such as abortion.

Obama could also appreciate Clinton's undeniably keen mind. Even Clinton detractors have noted her remarkable mental skills; she would be equal to any legal or intellectual challenge she would face as a justice. The fact that she hasn't served on a bench before would be inconsequential, considering her experience in law and in government.

If there was ever any doubt that liberals see the Supreme Court, not as a enforcer of the rule of law, but merely one more poltical force promoting the liberal agenda, this article should put that delusion to rest.

I love the quote "considering her experience in law and government".

What experience in law? Hiding evidence of the Rose Law Firm billing records? Illegally reviewing the FBI records of political opponents? Going before a judge and repeating ad infinitum "I don't recall?" There is the little issue that her husband has been disbarred for his conduct in the cases involved in his mysoginist sexual escapades.

Hillary has lots of experience in government promoting the concept that there is a vast right wing conspiracy . . . out to get her and her husband. Hillary promoted the most oppressive socialized medicine plan the world has ever seen. Is this the government experience we are supposed to admire?

To turn this paranoid, arrogant, self righteous socalist into a Supreme Court Justice would be the final proof that our courts are a corrupt farce.
