White House: Obama Not Picking Clinton for Court

Monday, 12 Apr 2010 04:10 PM

The White House says President Barack Obama won't be nominating Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to the Supreme Court.

The idea emerged Monday when Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah said in an interview on NBC's "Today" show that he'd heard Clinton's name mentioned in connection with the upcoming vacancy on the court. Justice John Paul Stevens is retiring this summer and Obama is reviewing candidates to succeed him.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters Monday that Obama has no intention of changing Clinton's job title.

Said Gibbs: "The president is going to keep her as his secretary of state."
