If Kerry should win. Hillary is screwed for the next 8 years as far as being President. Is it to far fetched to think that she could be appointed as the next Chief Justice? This would be worse then her being President. And with 2 to 4 justices who may retire. God help us.

Let's hope not. What a fricking nightmare that would be.

I think this would trigger a civil war.

All the more important to keep a strong conservative congress. The Senate approval is part of checks and balances, but what the hell, take it all the way to the top.

NO WAY she would make it through the confirmation process. She's never been a judge.

Sigh

If you would click the link to the other thread, you would see that previous judicial experience is not required. Our current Chief Justice, William Rehnquist, never served as a judge at any level prior to being appointed to the SCOTUS. There have numerous other Justices whose first judicial experience was on the Supreme Court.

ETA: Since 1903, there have been 50 Justices appointed to the Supreme Court. Of those 50 justices 22, or 44%, had no previous judicial experience.
