SCOTUS Nominee That Would Most Excite the Democratic Party Base

If President Obama wanted to electrify his base, and not just his those who have JDs or follow legal decisions like sports, he would nominate Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  While the selection of people like Professors Pam Karlan, Kathleen Sullivan or Larry Tribe would rev up the liberal legal community, most voters haven’t the faintest idea who they are, let alone what there stances are on legal issues.  While most people, including myself, do not know where Hillary stands, most people know who she is. And most who know who she is think she is pretty liberal.  She could turn out to fool everyone like C.J. Earl Warren or J. Stevens.  But I doubt that would happen.

If President Obama wants to help his party in November, there are few choices that would be better.  Plus, she is a former Senator and the Senate usually does not give its own a hard on confirmation.
