Am I the only one that thinks the genius appointment to replace Justice Stevens would be Pres. Clinton?
He is a moderate Democrat, not some uber-liberal tool of the left. He has experience from the state level to the federal level, so he understands how federal legislation affects state government.
The Party owes him for bringing them back to life. He was the only successful Democratic President since Truman. It would be respectful, and give him gravitas that he, being an impeached President, cannot attain in any other way.
Just a thought.
