Hillary: Obama on the Supreme Court is a 'Great Idea'

"He is brilliant."

On the campaign stump in Iowa, Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was asked by an audience member about putting President Obama on the Supreme Court if she were to win the presidential race. She responded, “I’ll tell you, that’s a great idea!” Clinton told the crowd.

She also said no one had ever asked her that question before.

"Cautioning that Obama likely has other plans for his post-White House life, the former secretary of state continued her recent pattern of tying herself closely to the current president."

Hillary used the opportunity to talk about how important it is to elect a Democrat president for the sake of appointing Supreme Court justices.

She did warn it might not be so easy to get President Obama confirmed by the current GOP Senate.

Still, “I would certainly take that under advisement,” she said of the man who would be the first former president on the Supreme Court since William Howard Taft. “He is brilliant and can set forth an argument."
