Hilary Clinton makes some remarks on the state of the Court and the person she would potentially select if given the opportunity.

Well, her comments are hypocritical to say the least. She engages in judge-bashing even though she isn’t saying names but she ridicules others for doing it. She has some good ideas about overturning Ledbetter and reinforcing Brown, but ultimately it sounds like she’s using some of the standard firing lines about the court (precedent, understanding America.) The way she bashed the Court’s conservative members by discredited their life experiences was rude and largely irrelevant but she’s a politician and thats what politicians do.

If she is elected, she will almost invariably get at least one nomination in her first or second year (Justice Ginsburg) and probably one more (Justice Souter) before her term ends.
