Obama hasn’t even endorsed his former Vice President.

Joe Biden pledged to nominate former President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court during a campaign event in Iowa over the weekend.

Biden was asked if he would nominate Obama, to which he responded, “if he’d take it, yes.

The leading Democratic Presidential candidate went on to endorse a wholly revisionist interpretation of the constitution, stating that he would nominate judges who viewed it as a “living document.” He also said that he wanted the half of the judges serving on the Supreme Court to be women.

Only one former President has ever served on the Supreme Court. William Howard Taft served one term as President from 1909 to 1913, and was later nominated to the Supreme Court in 1921, serving until his death in 1930.

Nominating Obama would violate a general norm of American government, seeing as Taft is the only exception to an unwritten rule separating the executive and judicial branches.

As a Supreme Court Justice, Obama would almost certainly be a radical progressive, voting to further mandate abortion rights and to uphold strict gun restrictions. Obama would most likely also seek to impose judicial amnesties akin to his own 2014 attempt to shield millions of illegal immigrants from immigration law.

Biden’s generous offer to the former President may come as a bit surprising to some, considering that Obama has thus far declined to endorse his former Vice President’s campaign. Some have wondered if the non-endorsement represents a slight to Biden, with Obama preferring a more “diverse” candidate to old, white Biden.

It’s unclear if Biden will stick by his pledge to nominate Obama if the former President remains coolly detached from his presidential campaign.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
