Andrew Sullivan: Genius or Idiot?

[I believe the last time I used this title, it was for a post called "Eminem: Genius or Idiot?" Someone could do an interesting comparison between Sullivan and Mathers, but it won't be me.] Sullivan writes an awesome piece for The Times* about Clinton's bid for the presidency. Here's the part that blows my mind:
Besides, there is a perfect position for her in American public life -- and it's not in the Senate, despite her eminently respectable record there. She belongs on the Supreme Court. She's a lawyer who wants to change the world. That's almost a job description for a liberal justice.
Good idea or bad? Obviously, I disagree with Sully's ideas about what constitutes a "respectable" record, but what of this Supreme Court nonsense? I have to say, it's kind of intriguing. *London, not NY, so no registration necessary.

Sweet, tap-dancing Christ, no.

There are so many reasons why, I don't know where to begin.

I still want Fred Thompson.

That'd be so cool.

You can keep Fred. To be honest, I run hot and cold on Hillary. But, the main reason I like her is that she is head and shoulders smarter than the rest of the pack of potential nominees. I guess I would love to see her on the bench for precisely that reason.
