Justice Rodham-Clinton?

This is guest blogger wile e coyote.

I smell a rat.

Hillary's life has been spent in the pursuit and enjoyment of power. She will not go quietly into that good night.

If she withdraws short of the convention and throws her support behind Obama, it's because there was a juicy backroom deal.

Vice Presidents don't have legacies, but Supreme Court Justices sometimes do.

I would like the media to ask Obama if he will/would/might nominate Hillary to the Supreme Court. Hammer this issue until Election Day.

Given a Democrat-controlled Senate and a Democrat in the White House, Senate rules could be suspended to avoid a filibuster. Republicans considered just this tactic when they last controlled the Presidency and Senate.

With the prospect of Hillary on the Supreme Court, McCain's efforts as part of the Gang of 14 don't look so foolish, or un-conservative, do they?

Republicans would never, ever, ever, consider a filibuster against a court appointment. They told us the most important thing ever was to ensure upper-down votes on Judicial appointments--that the very foundations of constitutional government were built on upper-downs.

This was, of course, when the Republicans in the Senate bought into in Karl Rove's grandiose delusions of a permanent Republican majority. Oh how Barack Obama is going to enjoy using the new-found constitutional authorities the Republican Congress vested in the executive.

Say it after me...

Yes, we can!
Upper-Down
Yes, we can!
Upper-Down
Yes, we can!
Upper-Down
Yes, we can!
Upper-Down
Yes, we can!
Upper-Down
Yes, we can!
Upper-Down
