The plan to put Barack Obama on the Supreme Court is already in motion


obama-supreme-court-300x173Barack Obama and William Howard Taft could soon have something in common other than enjoying an evening at the ballpark.

That’s because Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is publicly backing the idea of nominating Obama to the Supreme Court should she win the November presidential election.

The issue came up Tuesday when an attendee at a Clinton campaign event in Iowa asked about the possibility of a “Supreme Court Justice Barack Obama”

“Wow, what a great idea. No one has ever suggested that to me, I love that, wow,” Clinton said. “He may have a few other things to do, but I tell you, that’s a great idea. I mean, he’s brilliant, he can set forth an argument and he was a law professor. So he’s got all the credentials, but we would have to get a Democratic Senate to get him confirmed.”

Putting a former president on the Supreme Court has been done before.  Like Obama, William Howard Taft served two terms as president.  He left office in 1913, but in 1921 he was named Chief Justice of the Supreme Court by then-president Warren Harding.

As a Supreme Court justice, Obama could strike down attempts to challenge his own policies in the federal courts.
