Iowa is so interesting!

IMG_7107Iowa is interesting, even more so during Caucus time.  Every four years Presidential candidates roam around the country especially Iowa to gather support for their parties nomination.

Recently during visits to Iowa, Democrat nominees have made interesting statements on how the court under their Administration may change.

Hillary Clinton recently said – “President Obama would make a terrific Supreme Court Justice”.

This has happened once before.  William Howard Taft the 27th president of the United States, was appointed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, nearly eight years after his presidency had ended.

Fellow Democrat Bernie Sanders Tweeted – Any Supreme Court nominee of mine will make overturning Citizens United one of their first decisions.

Some have noted that Bernie’s Tweet was a little half-cocked as it’s not the President who decides how the Supreme Court will vote or even which cases they decide to take.

No matter who chooses the next Supreme Court Justice, Iowa will always be Interesting!

  1. I do feel President Obama would make a great Supreme Court justice, but getting his nomination through the legislative branch of government could be very tricky.
