Joe Biden was asked a question this weekend about nominating Obama to the Supreme Court and of course he said he’d do it:
NY POST – Joe Biden said he would nominate Barack Obama to the Supreme Court if the former commander-in-chief was willing to do the job.
The former vice president, who served two terms under Obama, was answering questions during a campaign event Saturday in Washington, Iowa when he was asked if he’d ever nominate the 44th president to the nation’s highest court.
“If he’d take it, yes.” Biden said in response.
The move, if Biden were elected as president in 2020, would make Obama the second president in American history to also serve as a Supreme Court justice.
Obama on the Supreme Court is just more reason to vote Trump over any of these radical socialists. What a nightmare that would be.
While this question most certainly could have been organic, the cynic in me wonders if the question was really a plant by Team Biden. After all, Biden has been pushing his relationship with Obama all throughout the primary, including in this cringeworthy tweet he released back in June:

Biden knows Obama has said he won’t endorse during the primary, but he really wants to ride the coattails of his former boss to the White House. So it really wouldn’t surprise me to learn that this question was planted by Team Biden to help Biden overcome his rivals.
Despite the national polls showing Biden with a strong lead, he’s still running third in Iowa and third in New Hampshire and with those elections being first, it could swing the momentum against him in other states in which he’s currently leading.
