In response to an email from a supporter in Iowa, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she would consider naming current President Barack Obama to the US Supreme Court if she won the 2016 presidential race, provided she decides to run, while hinting that he might be given a cabinet position if “the legality checks out.”

Molly Warren of Mason City, Iowa emailed Clinton two weeks ago, saying that she was going into law school after being inspired by Clinton’s story. After vowing to vote for Clinton in 2016, which will be the first presidential election she’ll have been eligible to vote in, Warren asked if Clinton would consider placing President Obama on the Supreme Court, noting his legal education and background.

“As for President Obama, I would imagine he’s looking forward to retiring from public life and taking a rest,” Clinton said in part of her response. “I know my husband wanted a short break after his eight years in the White House, before starting the Clinton Global Initiative. As for Barack, though, I would of course consider him for the Supreme Court. I believe he would make a great justice, and he’s certainly qualified for the role. No US President has ever gone to the Supreme Court, nor has any individual ever served in all three branches of our government, so it would be unprecedented. But I agree; he’d definitely make for a great Supreme Court Justice, at a time when we need those seats filled with strong independent minds.”

Clinton went on to say she’d consider Obama for other roles, too. “If President Obama weren’t up for the Supreme Court, I would absolutely love to have him in the cabinet, so long as the legality checks out. I would have to verify any rules that might prohibit him from holding certain offices due to the line of succession, but I think the world of President Obama and would love to see him keep up the good fight for the people of this great nation.”

Clinton would not say whether she was going to run or not, nor would she address Warren’s question about other likely candidates, like Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Chris Christie, Mitt Romney, or Rand Paul. Instead, she kept it vague, in classic Hillary fashion, saying “I haven’t made up my mind yet, but you’ll know soon whose pin you’ll be wearing during the upcoming election [smiley face].”

    According to Ms. Hillary, “No US President has ever gone to the Supreme Court…” Well, surprise surprise, that’s not true! Look up William Howard Taft…

  2. Stacey says:

    That way, all the illegal crap he did would become legal

  3. Joe says:

    Doesn’t he actually have to have a license to practice law to sit on the Supreme Court?

    • Yes, but Obama doesn’t need one. He’s the great black hope don’t you know? So the trash liberals in gov’t would simply appoint him and ignore the law until a conservative came along, then the liberals would be pulling out the law books and rules to slap in the faces of those who would support a conservative on the court. Remember the law & rules only apply to Republicans and conservatives.

  4. Betty says:

    A law degree is NOT required to be a Supreme Court Justice. I don’t think Obama would get past the confirmation process AND don’t think he’d even want that job. I’m sure he just wants to campaign, be a celebrity, and play golf.

    • Sarge says:

      Don’t think for a second he wouldn’t jump at the chance to continue destroying our ‘capitalist’ way of life, Betty. If you think he wouldn’t you don’t know the hate that’s in him. He’s fulfilling the dreams of many avowed socialist Marxist’s right now and bringing us closer than we’ve ever been to becoming the USSA…the United Socialist States of America

    Hillary publicly stating she would nominate Barack Obama to Supreme Court????

    Since Obama can decide whether to prosecute Hillary for her E-mail scandles………

    Pretty much EVERYWHERE IN AMERICA this would be called a BRIBE!!

  6. Brandy says:

    Hillary also stated that “no individual has ever served in all three branches of our government,” which is not true! The executive branch includes the Vice President as well as Cabinet members. John Marshall was elected to hold a seat in the US House of Representatives for Virginia (legislative branch). He held the position for only a short time before being appointed as Secretary of State (executive branch) under John Adams. Then, in 1801 he became Chief Justice for the US Supreme Court (judicial branch) and held the position until his death in 1835. Honestly, any future president should know US history! Hillary consistently spouts off erroneous comments. She has so many sheeple (blind followers) that they don’t bother to fact check or continually excuse or ignore her lies. America needs a great president and she is NOT IT!!

    • Jeff Omwela says:

      Barack Obama Snr was a Kenyan from the DhoLuo or Luo Community…totally black and totally African…that makes the US President 50% black. As for the Arabic aspect…if you are a white American and embrace Islam…does that make you an Arab? It does make you a Muslim…but does it make you an Arab?

  7. Geo Dumfries says:

    These politicians what to continue on the government tit for a lifetime. Hillary had 8 years as a wife and and 8 years as a U.S. Senator and 4 years as the Secretary of State. @0 years of federal subsidy wherein she did not have to accomplish anything, just suck up the pay.
