Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she would “certainly” consider appointing President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court.
The remark came in response to a question from a voter in Iowa.
“Wow, what a great idea,” Clinton said, according to multiple reports.
She added, “I would certainly take that under advisement. I mean, he is brilliant and he can set forth an argument.”
Asked if she would consider appointing Obama to SCOTUS, Clinton marvels she's never been asked that question, calls it a "great idea."

It’s likely that the next president will have to make at least one appointment to the Supreme Court.
