Jeffrey Rosen of the Washington Post argues that the qualities that are often criticized about President Obama are just the qualities that would make him an ideal Supreme Court Justice. Geez, that's a lifetime appointment isn't it? So, even if he's voted out, "he'll be back!" And he will be back forever. Yikes.
The one good thing I see in Rosen's piece, is a kind of shift in thinking about Obama. One, Rosen seems to acknowledge that there are some valid criticisms being made. And two, the general tenor of the piece seems to be to make a case for another powerful government job for Obama after he's defeated in 2012.
I don't have a problem with giving him a government job, just not one on the Supreme Court. How about Mayor of Chicago? Works for me. If he leaves in 2012.
