The Associated Press has reported that Hillary Clinton’s name has surfaced as a possible replacement for Justice Stevens, who recently announced his retirement from the Supreme Court.
The report is based on an appearance by Senators Hatch and Leahy on NBC’s Today show. Hatch said “I heard Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s name today and that would be an interesting person in the mix.” He said he likes Clinton and that she has done a good job for the Democratic party. However he did not indicate whether he would support her. Senator Leahy, an obvious supporter, said “I think she’s done a good job for the country, not just for Democrats.”
