Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton urged her supporters to demand that the Senate approve President Obama’s Supreme Court pick — even though she herself seemed to undercut Judge Merrick Garland, saying she wanted justices with more varied “life experience” than what he brings to the bench.

Mrs. Clinton said she wouldn’t second-guess Mr. Obama’s decision to pick Judge Garland to fill the seat left vacant by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, but added that if she were in the Oval Office she would search for nominees in the mold of Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Mrs. Clinton said Justice Mayor’s Hispanic heritage and underprivileged upbringing brought needed perspectives to the high court.

Mrs. Clinton also said she would impose litmus tests on abortion and campaign finance. Her nominees, she said, would have to prove that they would uphold the Roe v. Wade decision establishing a national right to abortion and would have to show that they would overturn the Citizens United decision that established free speech campaign rights for interest groups.

“I would not appoint someone who didn’t think Roe v. Wade is settled law,” Mrs. Clinton said while campaigning in Madison, Wisconsin, where the next primary is slated for next week.

  • Harold Sammons

    Now campaign reform would only effect non democrats and only after she has sucked up every penny she can get her hands on!

    The woman is laughable, no campaign finance ??? Really ? She would take
    $5.00 off a dead man ! Abortion is settled law ? Really ? Not for me.

  • Smitch

    The only litmus test needed for Hillary is the Lead Litmus Test!

  • Maggiemae

    That’s hysterical….I can’t stop laughing…seriously!!! Hillary, the queen of taking money..as much as she can get her hands on…for anything and everything…imposing campaign finance. Still laughing. What a joke! Did someone give her a labotomy? Or is she really that much of a moron…add ignorant to that. I’m sure any fine nursing home would be happy to make her comfortable for the reminder of her non-functional mental capacity days. This woman shouldn’t be allowed out in public without a responsible adult. You just can’t fix stupid…you just need to make sure they don’t hold a public office.

  • Sara

    The CIA should have given Hillary a polygraph and litmus tests WAY before she ever got her foot in the door. Liar liar pants on fire. She’s toast, I wish she’d just give it up already.

    • Michael Dennewitz

      Where are all the well trained SNIPERS when you really need one? ??

        I dunno, maybe hangin out in the treetops waiting for their orders;)

        • Sara

          Because, well I think they’re very tired of being used, onto the game, and it’s no wonder they’re afraid of the military-they treated them like disposable toys.

  • Kathleen Pedersen
