A CNN article is speculating about Bill Clinton being a potential candidate for the Supreme Court, and the possibility that his wife may nominate him if she is elected. What do you think about his potential as a SC Justice, and would your opinion differ if he were nominated by his wife or some other president?

Supreme Court would be great as it's a lifetime appointment, but I'd love to see him as Secretary of State.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

bubba will hold no official position in a carpet bagger administration. too much baggage. i know, i know the truth hurts, but c'mon, if i have to deal with a probable huckabee nomination, you have to face that bubba's done in an official capacity.

That would be a nightmare -- besides if memory serves Bubba was disbarred.

The whole Madam President and Mister Justice thing...

Can we get that up on TV as an ad??

That would scare 75% of the voters.

Wow! Can we start a collection to get that little tidbit on TV??????

not really, rad. he was suspended for 5 years in arkansas and was eligible to apply for re-instatement in '06. the u.s. supreme court voted to disbar him, but he resigned from the court before it kicked in.

Whether or not he is disbarred has no relevance (I think) on his eligibility for the SC. I don't think there is any such requirement.

If he gets any sort of position I would imagine it would be as an ambassador or some kind.

We need a commercial.

A gay man in DC said he would design the commercial gratis.

We just have to get it on the air. Then, it's all over for Hillbillary.

He hates the gays, he hates the Jews, but he loves the Broadway, an institution that would not exist were it not for gays & Jews. Amazing, huh?

He loves Broadway?

I didn't know. I think that's because I've rarely if ever seen him post about Broadway or on the main board. Maybe once or twice but that could have been by mistake because he thought he was on the off-topic board...

Craig, how did you get to be so old, and so misinformed at the same time???????

I post on Broadway topics all the time. I loved the Jerry Herman PBS special. I had a great thread going, and you pulled it down.

You know you pulled it down. It was all Broadway and no politics. That Herman thread was in the last 24 hours. I have had many, many others. You, Craiggles, you know that. Yet you perpetuate that usual liberal lie to your sophists and sycophants.

I never, ever, never once said I hated gays.

Jerry Herman is truly one of the greats!!

Back to Bill - I sincerely hope he doesn't take on any 'official' job. He's actually getting things done now that he's unfettered by our idiotic government, and has the money of the real power at his disposal. Any kind of 'appointment' would be a demotion at this point.

I don't like the idea of the judiciary being in bed with the Executive Branch. (Figuratively and literally.)
