    Someone called Michael Savage's show and suggested that Hillary could stick Obama on the Supreme Court if elected. They kind of blew off the notion, but anyone think there is any chance this could actually happen? This was just a caller, not Savage who said it, but I've seen crazier shit in recent years. It doesn't look like there are any "official" qualifications to sit on the SCOTUS (and he is a Constitutional lawyer), but would something like this this ever past the senate? Assuming he'd even want the position, of course.

    bring it :surround:

    Not trying to be an alarmist, just wondering

    While the Constitution stipulates qualifications for being President of the United States, it is silent as to qualifications for Supreme Court justices. I think there has been a justice who has not been a lawyer.

    That all depends on whether or not he wants to go back to defending slum lords, like he did in his private profession.

    he could do some real damage on the SCOTUS, not to mention we'd have to look at that smug face of his forever.

    I dont think he would except it if Hillary offers the job.
    He will be pretty well burnt out after 8 years and may just want to retire.
    Interesting possibility though.

    Anyone who think Obama is going to give up the millions of dollars he's due to earn giving speeches to his corporate friends to become a supreme court justice is a fucking moron.

    Gee, I can:
    1) cash in all these political favors I've been handing out for the last eight years and live a fabulous life as a millionaire celebrity, or
    2) take a full time job being a fucking judge.

    Decisions, decisions...

    i think its funny that bam trolled the Rs by picking the one guy they said theyd be OK with.

    it wasn't Savage, dummy, it was a caller and Savage laughed it off. Read much? Aside from wikipedia, I mean?
