The Washington Times visits Little Rock for last week’s campaign rally in support of Barack Obama and learns that some Arkansas Democrats have a clear favorite for the next Supreme Court appointment: Hillary Clinton:

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s most loyal supporters here say they have a new reason to back the man who dashed her presidential hopes: They want Sen. Barack Obama to appoint her to the U.S. Supreme Court if he wins the White House.

“I would have liked to see her win, but I’m not wistful,” said Grace Block, 77. “We’d love to see her on the Supreme Court if he would ask her.”

Voters attending Mrs. Clinton’s homecoming rally, a campaign event for her one-time rival, said they will now back Mr. Obama, and most of them, unprompted, told The Washington Times they want him to choose their former first lady for the high court.

“Having her on the Supreme Court would help us a lot. She could make sure we cement Roe v. Wade,” said Judi Woods, a Little Rock supporter who campaigned for Mrs. Clinton across the country during the prolonged primary.

    And I thought that Ruth Bader Ginsburg was bad. Hillary would be just as bad if not worse!

    Just can not see her giving up politics yet. Even for a seat at the big table.
