    I was not sure if this thread should have been put in the humor section. The thought of Bill of the SC is a sad and sick joke

    Justice Clinton?
    President Taft went on to the Supreme Court. Maybe Mrs. Clinton will park her husband there.

    BY DOUGLAS W. KMIEC

    Hillary Clinton's commanding lead in the polls has diminished, and with Oprah Winfrey stumping for Barack Obama, she's called increasingly on the "star power" of husband Bill. But the ubiquitous presence of the former president on the campaign prompts a question: What will Hillary do with Bill if she is elected?

    Of course, one might say Hillary has been wondering what to do with Bill for quite some time. But Mr. Clinton's prominent role in his wife's campaign--whether going head to head with Oprah for airtime or defending Hillary from "swift-boat-like attacks" from rival Democrats--has renewed the question: What exactly will he be doing on Jan. 21, 2009?

    Several job ideas have already been floated. He might be appointed by Gov. Eliot Spitzer of New York to serve the remainder of Mrs. Clinton's U.S. Senate term. While there is precedent for former presidents--even a former impeached president (Andrew Johnson) returning to the national legislative body--few close to former President Clinton think being one of 100 would satisfy his boundless persona.

    In any event, Gov. Spitzer is already under some considerable pressure to appoint a minority to Sen. Clinton's seat, and even though Mr. Clinton was described by writer Toni Morrison as "the first black president," that won't cut it with the practitioners of identity politics.

    Mr. Clinton has also been contemplated for something dubbed "ambassador to the world." But the federal government's anti-nepotism law would likely preclude her naming Bill to her cabinet.

    I see the "Ambassador to the World" title more likely than him getting past Congress and onto the Supreme Court, IF someone else retires. She can just appoint him "whatever," as he did her, and he can run amock.

    If all the libs left tomorrow, the US would resemble German circa 1933-1945. It's the libs that are stopping that from taking place now...:shock:

    Playing the Nazi card early in the debate - you are desperate

    Are you going to comment on the thread or just trying to derail it?

    You accusing me of derailing a thread is like John Wayne Gacy accusing Sean Penn of having an anger problem.

    Not really re the Nazi card. How I truly feel. See Republican-led congress Patriot Acts I and II for clarification..
