Hillary On Sandoval:  'I Hope The President Chooses A True Progressive'

CNN's Dan Merica reports from South Carolina on Hillary Clinton's reaction to a Republican Supreme Court nomination.

The trial balloon of Governor Brian Sandoval (R-NV) as a possible Obama nomination to the court is being roundly condemned on both sides of the political spectrum. The Guardian:

Charles Chamberlain, executive director of Democracy for America, said: “It’s downright absurd that President Obama would risk his legacy by appointing another anti-labour Republican like Governor Brian Sandoval to an already overwhelmingly pro-big business supreme court.

“Nominating Sandoval to the supreme court would not only prevent grassroots organisations like Democracy for America from supporting the president in this nomination fight, it could lead us to actively encouraging Senate Democrats to oppose his appointment.”

One thing is certain: the Sandoval thing is either the worst trial balloon, or the most awesome troll against Mitch McConnell, ever.
