Douglas W. Kmiec thinks this is a real worry that will dog the Hillary Clinton campaign. I know it bugs the hell out of me.
Anyway, Kmiec is talking about Bill receiving a formal position and comes up with the idea that H could appoint him to the Supreme Court! He mainly speculates about whether Bill would do it. In that regard, I note that Bill Clinton was always trying to appoint a politician to the Court (and only turned to Ginsburg and Breyer when his choices turned him down).
But isn't Bill spectacularly unsuited to the Court? His age and medical history alone would normally exclude him. And he'd have to recuse himself in some of the most important cases, it seems, as long as HC is Prez. But I'm sure he could handle the job, and it would be interesting to see how someone with his talents would transform the Court. The Justices are always so sober and scholarly. It seems to be a gray little world — for all its importance — but we all love a fish out of water story.
And imagine the hilarious turnabout when the Judiciary Committee calls in the witnesses to give him the Clarence Thomas treatment.
