    I was fuzzily remembering.

    I used to think it would be a great deal if President Obama were to make a deal with Joe Biden at some point where he would resign and Joe Biden would then appoint him to the Supreme Court.

    Now, however, given his resistance to prosecute anyone responsible for torture, war crimes, banking fraud and many situations while his Justice Department goes hard after Whistleblowers and deporting people in this country illegally and he continues to maintain drone strikes, and probably still maintains the violations of privacy from the Patriot Act instead of challenging them in court - well, I no longer wish to have him on the USSC on a lifetime appointment.  Sure, maybe that would release him from having to grovel for approval from Republicans and fat Wall Street banksters, but he could do so now and the country would support him.  Instead, he continues to push policies that hurt the country and I think he would continue to side with the 1% in his judgements on the court.

    Pure speculation at this point.
