Clinton Supports The Idea Of Nominating Obama To The Supreme Court

Answering a voter in Decorah, Iowa on appointing President Obama as Supreme Court Judge, Hilary Clinton said she is for the idea. In her response, Clinton was heard saying, “Wow, what a great idea. Nobody has ever suggested that to me. Wow, I love that, wow. He may have a few other things to do, but I tell you that’s a great idea.” Acknowledging the fact that the president has the prerogative to appoint Supreme Court judges, Clinton was open to this idea. Moreover, nearly 50% of the judges in the Supreme Court have served more than 20 to 30 years and are reaching their 80s.

Clinton reiterated the fact that new judges are required to understand the new challenges faced. She also said that it is not an easy task as the Senate has to approve the judge’s appointments. Clinton admitted that he had all the credential to become a judge as he can start and the argument being a law professor by profession. The Democratic Party presidential candidate added that Obama has all the qualifications to become a judge. She also said that since the Senate approval is needed for the appointment, she called for the support of the voters.

Clinton was noted as saying, “He’s brilliant and he can set forth an argument, and he was a law professor. He’s got all the credentials. Now, we do have to get a Democratic Senate to get him confirmed, so you’re going to have to help me on that.”

It may be noted that Obama taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago. He attended the Harvard Law School and had the credit of being the first black president of the school of Harvard Law Review. But the president of United States, Barrack Obama may not be interested in this posting, as he had earlier informed in an interview in the year 2014 in the New Yorker that he does not have the temperament to sit in the chamber to write opinions. Obama also made it clear that he did not choose to clerk once he was out of the law school because he was not because he was an older student.

Donald Trump Will Be At Drake University Instead Of Attending Fox News Debate

Donald Trump found himself in a barn in Lexington County, Gilbert, South Carolina. Trump donned the Make America Great Again cap and said he preferred wearing the cap as he was at a barn. The interest of supporters gathered at the barn was on a Thursday evening Fox News debate that Donald Trump is unlikely to attend. So what would he prefer to do on Thursday evening is the question that caught the interest of many of the audiences. Reaching out to the Iowa audience he said that he will be raising money for the vets.

Trump will be at the Drake University on Thursday evening the same time the Fox News debate was to be health. The event will be helpful to some veteran groups that he did not name. At this same time, Republican presidential candidates will be in a heated debate. During his speech is made a reference to the Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly without pronouncing her name whom he earlier called unprofessionally. Trump referring to his earlier GOP debate held at Cleveland in August said that he did not debate but received an unfair question and did not want to talk about it.

The barn had around 1,500 supporters and was warmer than expected. During the event, women fainted, and Trump wished her well. A retired veteran from the army Susan Lepping (69) made it to the barn from Augusta, Georgia to witness Trump’s second rally. Meanwhile, the Lieutenant Governor Henry McMaster of South Carolina openly endorsed Trump before the speech putting the audience to surprise. McMaster had earlier endorsed Republican nominee Sen. John McCain in 2008. He also supported the ambassador to China Jon Huntsman in the year 2012.

McMaster called to the crowd to support Trump saying, “Now is the time for Donald Trump.” The speech by Trump was shorter than his usual one-hour speech. It had mentions of China, Iranian nuclear deal. He also talked about his rising poll number and mentioned that he is self-funding his campaign. The Republican front-runner will be in the limelight irrespective of whether he attends the Fox News debate or not.
