Skip to comments.Joe Biden panders to Obama on a Supreme Court slot: Says He'd Nominate Ex-President for SCOTUS Justice

In a departure from the Democratic Party candidate preoccupation of offering up ever bigger banquets of free stuff to voters, Joe Biden has said something that sticks out.
He'd offer a Supreme Court spot to former President Barack Obama, "if he'd take it."
Here's a report from the Epoch Times:
Former Vice President Joe Biden said that he would nominate former President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court if he won the presidency, according to several reports.
“Biden asked here in Washington, Iowa, if he would ever nominate former President Obama to serve on the Supreme Court. ‘If he’d take it, yes,’” wrote Wall Street Journal reporter Ken Thomas on Twitter.
New York Times reporter Thomas Kaplan confirmed the former vice president’s “If he’d take it, yes,” statement.
That's a pander.
It not only comes off as a bid to suck up to Obama by offering him this pretty bauble as an incentive to get an endorsement, it also would be pretty useful for Old Joe politically, not having the Obama political machine to worry about if he makes it to the White House, what with Obama being figuratively kicked upstairs to some non-intersecting branch of government. Sure, the question was thrown at Biden, Biden didn't offer it up unsolicited. But Biden was ready with his answer when the question came, which rather looks like he'd thought about the matter earlier and figured this would be a way to win new votes on the left. Given how the media operates these days, it's also possible the question was planted.

This is why elections matter. As long as we hold the senate there will be no Obama on SCOTUS
That would be sweet revenge on Obama for Biden. Make the Chosen One do some work for a change, even if it’s only showing up for oral arguments. Sure would put a crimp in the International Celebrity lifestyle.
Well, he’s as qualified as Kagan was, which is to say not at all.
OBeelzebub is too damn lazy to work on the S.C.
Who believes that Barry has any desire to work?
It does underscore the importance of holding the Senate.
Do not allow your local R party heads to nominate dumbasses who can’t win or who would turn into another Collins, Murkowski, or Romney.
We didnt need another reason to vote against groping Joe but he sure gave us a good one. Seems like a former POTUS would have to recuse pretty often except rats never recuse. Never
Quid pro joe for an endorsement?
Talk about a get out the vote incentive. I'm all in.
B.O. would have staff do everything for him.
After B.O. handlers told his staffers what B.O. wants.
That’s something since Obama basically told Biden not to run for Prez and he won’t endorse him.
Joe, get off your knees, wipe the shoe polish from Obama’s wingtips off your mouth and notice there’s a young mother and her underage daughter who want your autograph.
Wheres 0bolas endorsement of Gropin Joe?
He wouldn’t be the first Ex-POTUS on the SCOTUS................
Just another job Obama is completely unqualified for.
The Idiot Biden can forget it, the Kenyan from Indonesia will not endorse him even with this.
Didn’t he call him “Dr. Obama”? I guess a J.D. degree makes him a doctor, just like a doctorate in education entitles Biden’s wife to be called Dr. Biden.
