Hilary Clinton To SCOTUS?

Not hearing much noise about this, so it's probably just a conversation I'm having in my head. But why wouldn't Barack Obama put Hillary in the Supreme Court.

1. She'd be a reliable lefty vote
2. She'd bring the "politician" voice back to the Court some have longed for since Sandra Day O'Connor retired.
3. She'd be taken out--completely--as a political force to be dealt with (can you say Teddy Kennedy, 1980 Democratic Primary Challenge?)
4. As bruising as the fight would be in the Senate--it would be a whole lot LESS bruising than if they nominated some of the people they are currently thinking about.

I'm just sayin'.

UPDATE: I spoke (wrote) too soon.

Turn the nomination process into a political bloodbath. Put socialism and thereby Obama on trial. If nothing else it stalls his agenda until the midterms.
And please don't act like it's never been done before. I remind you of Clarence Thomas and Robert Bork.

I wouldn't trust Hillary with operating a hot-dog stand, how she rose to any political office is a real statement about our politics.

I hear you Parabola--but hell, she's like--oh, I don't know--a thousand million times more qualified to be President than the guy we have--which ain't sayin' much.

But the tactical value of shipping her off to the Supremes--there's something to it if you're a CHicago mobstyle pol.
