After a hard-fought Democrat primary in 2008, Obama prevailed and went on to win the election. He took the opportunity to reconcile and tap Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.
Ready for some serious déjà vu?
Hillary has acknowledged that once Obama retires from his 8 years of attempting to fundamentally transform America, she would also nominate him to one of the most powerful positions in the land. You would think with all the grey hairs he collected in office that he would like a break, but most would agree that he would take this, no questions asked.
The opportunity to shape this country for the rest of his life is a pretty enticing prospect:
At a campaign event in Iowa Tuesday, Mrs. Clinton told the crowd the next president may have to appoint up to three Supreme Court justices. When one attendee mentioned Mr. Obama as a contender, she seemed excited by the recommendation.
“I mean, he’s brilliant, he can set forth an argument and he was a law professor,” she added. “So he’s got all the credentials, but we would have to get a Democratic Senate to get him confirmed.”
This is about worst-case scenario for conservative Republicans. Trump’s argument that even conservatives who are opposed to him must vote for him is pretty compelling: the Supreme Court hangs in the balance. It will set the direction on every major issue in this country for the next generation. This is truly the most consequential election in our lifetime—anyone who has sat on the sidelines must get involved, vote, and convince everyone they know to do the same.
