Article II of the Constitution gives the President power to nominate justices, who are then appointed "by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate." As a general rule, Presidents nominate individuals who broadly share their ideological views. Because the Constitution does not set forth any qualifications for service as a Justice, the President may nominate anyone to serve. However, that person must receive the confirmation of the Senate, meaning that a majority of that body must find that person to be a suitable candidate for a lifetime appointment on the nation's highest court.
Could this be the deal that Barack made with Hillary in order to get her and Bill to fall into rank and begin supporting not only him but vigorously campaigning for a Democrat majority in the House and Senate? Hill and Bill have been pimping themselves to the Obama thugocracy in a big way the last couple of weeks although we are well aware of the mutual disdain and resentment they have for Barack. Imagine Hillary being a SCOTUS for the rest of her natural life!!! Get out and fight people. Don't only fight against Obama but fight every single Democrat in your state and do not let them get a veto-proof advantage.
