Obama voters want Hillary Clinton in US Supreme CourtOctober 14th, 2008 - 5:04 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Oct 14 (ANI):Voters supporting Senator Barack Obama want him to appoint former First Lady and one time presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton to the U.S. Supreme Court if he wins the White House.
“I would have liked to see her win, but I”m not wistful. We”d love to see her on the Supreme Court if he would ask her,” the Washington Times quoted Grace Block, 77, as saying.
“Having her on the Supreme Court would help us a lot. She could make sure we cement Roe v. Wade,” said Judi Woods, a Little Rock supporter who campaigned for Clinton across the country during the prolonged primary.
The last time Mrs. Clinton was in Little Rock in January, before the Super Tuesday primaries, she was lauded by locals as the woman who would remember Arkansas when - not if - she reached the White House.
Now the election’’s outcome will determine how Democrats and the nation will view Clinton, 60 along with her political legacy.
If she’’s interested in the Supreme Court nomination, Mrs. Clinton, with four years left in her current Senate term, offered no hints. When thanking the members of the congressional delegation at the rally, she declared: “I look forward to serving with them for years to come.”
The Obama campaign declined to comment. (ANI)
