Well, my gentle snowflakes, if you don't like Hillary Clinton as the next nominee, how about---wait for it---Anita Hill?
Solid legal background. Not afraid of ANYTHING. Not Clarence Thomas. Not U. S. Senators. Not public scorn. No fear at all. Gutsy lady.
Even if President Obama does not appoint her, he could (after calling her first and telling her what he is doing) just kind of float her name out there. Maybe Thomas's head would explode!
Just something that rose up out of the depths of my unconscious. In the night.
(hee, hee, hee, I cackled maniacally --- again. You know, I may soon need some sort of intervention here. This is way too much fun.)
