Obama Snubs Hillary for Supreme Court

Bill and Hillary Clinton are only half-heartedly working to help elect Barack Obama president because he wouldn’t guarantee Hillary a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court if he wins the White House, sources told The New York Post.

One insider said: “Hillary wants an assurance that if she shows loyalty and goes out there like a good soldier, she will be rewarded with a nomination for the Supreme Court should a seat become available.”

A representative for Hillary sent an e-mail to The Post’s “Page Six” column on Wednesday calling the report: “Absurd. Nonsense. Rubbish. Hogwash. Malarkey.”

But The Post asserted on Thursday: “The problem is, we’re told, Obama ‘balked’ at promising Hillary the judgeship, perhaps because he still resents how the Clintons attacked him during the primaries.”

Bill Clinton has recently called Obama’s Republican rival John McCain a “good man” and a “friend,” and said he understands why GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin “is hot out there.”
