There’s been a lot of speculation as to what President Obama will do after he vacates the White House. Rumor has it Obama is secretly campaigning to become the United Nations attorney general, a position which, potentially, could give Obama more power than he had as president.
A Washington Times editorial speculated on those rumors. “Mr. Obama is said to think he can resolve the warfare between Shiites and Sunnis, between Persians and Arabs, Turks and Kurds, Copts and Salafists, and get the states of the United Nations to acclaim him as the messiah once envisioned for himself in Washington,” the editorial stated. “Hope and change didn’t work there, but maybe it would at the U.N., where standards and expectations are lower.”
Now, there’s another job prospect for Obama once he leaves office. The title could read, “Justice of the Supreme Court, Barack H. Obama,” if Hillary Clinton has her way.
While campaigning in Iowa this week, Clinton was asked, if elected president, would she consider appointing Obama to the Supreme Court. Clinton responded favorably to the suggestion.
“Wow, what a great idea,” Clinton said. “Nobody has ever suggested that to me, wow, I love that. He may have a few other things to do but I tell you that’s a great idea.”
She also pointed out the next president will likely appoint as many as three new justices to the court, and added she believes the court as a whole, “is heading in the wrong direction.”
Obama as a Supreme Court Justice? A lifetime appointment would be a good idea. Yeah Hillary Clinton has lost her mind. No way

Another Twitter user thought the idea would be self-serving for Clinton.
Seems Hillary will say or do anything to block her potential indictment. https://t.co/cueNlzGGNH

At any rate, the seeds of hope and change have been planted in Clinton’s mind. No word yet if Obama would even consider the idea.
