Hillary: ‘Worth a Try’ to Get Obama as a Supreme Court Justice

‘It would be worth the effort’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
BLITZER: "One final question, madam secretary, before I let you go. You said it would be a great idea to appoint -- to nominate President Obama to the U.S. Supreme Court. Have you given more thought to that possibility?" 
CLINTON: "Well, I have no idea that he'd ever be interested, but it was a fascinating idea. And if I'm so fortunate enough to be president and get the opportunity to fill a Supreme Court vacancy, which I hope I do, then I would certainly talk to him about it. I think he has other plans for his future, but hey, it would be worth the effort. We know he's a brilliant writer, he taught constitutional law, so it's worth a try."
