CNN has picked up a largely ignored story, and is apparently letting the blogging world discuss this issue...
According to the CNN Report, Hillary Clinton is planning to appoint Bill Clinton to the highest court in the land, the Supreme Court.
Of course, there are many issues that would likely restrict Clinton's appointment, unless the congress were overwhelmingly Democratic after the 2008 races, which include:
- Perjury before the Congress by Clinton
- His being disbarred
- Precedent for Husband/Wife to serve on Executive and Judicial branch of Federal Government at the same time (Taft served as a Justice after being president, but not during the term of a spouse, of course)
One further issue with this idea is the ensuring that the establishment of the Clinton Dynasty lives on in US politics. A move, which as of last night, could prove fatal for the Clinton campaign.
What are your thoughts on this issue: Supreme Court Justice William J. Clinton... ??? ...
