Hillary Clinton: Appointing Obama To Supreme Court Is “A Great Idea”

posted on January 29, 2016

At an Iowa campaign event Tuesday, when asked by a voter whether she would consider appointing Barack Obama to the U.S. Supreme Court, Hillary Clinton “lit up,” ABC News reports, and said, “Wow, what a great idea ... I love that ... that’s a great idea.” She added, “We do have to get a Democratic Senate to get him confirmed so you’re going to have to help me on that, OK?” 

For a peek at what that might mean, consider this: At a private fundraiser last year, Clinton said, “The Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment,” which means that in Hillary’s view, the core of the Court’s two recent Second Amendment decisions—that you have an individual, fundamental right to own a gun in your home for self-defense—is “wrong.” 

Worse yet, Barack Obama’s votes, positions and statements over the years are completely consistent with that view, which would make him a disaster as a Supreme Court justice.
