Does Barack Obama Want to Appoint Himself As Supreme Court Justice As
He Exits the White House?
Would you ever want to be a Supreme Court justice? [pauses]
You paused! No—well, the reason I paused for a second was just to make sure that I let people know that I think good judges are really important, and Supreme Court justices, obviously, are hugely important. I don’t have the temperament to sit in relative solitude and just opine and write from the bench. I want to be in the action a little bit more.
