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.

LISTEN: Mike Bloomberg Joked About Droning His Political Opponents in Leaked Audio
Bloomberg was speaking at an exclusive Goldman Sachs crowd of political elites.
Michael Bloomberg joked about using Predator drones to dispatch his political opponents at a Goldman Sachs event in 2016, stating that they’d be used on a “list of everybody that’s annoyed me or screwed me for the last 74 years.”
Listen to the tasteless and vengeful remarks from the authoritarian billionaire here:
Bloomberg was speaking at a Goldman Sachs event held at New York’s Yankee Stadium. Audio of his remarks was leaked to the public by a former Goldman Sachs employee disenchanted with the controversial financial institution.
A Bloomberg spokesperson admitted that the drone remarks were “inappropriate” in a statement on the audio to CNN.
During his remarks at the Goldman Sachs-sponsored event, Bloomberg declared his loyalty to major banking and Wall Streets financial institutions. He said that his hypothetical presidential campaign would seek to “defend the banks,” and that Goldman Sachs’ Wall Street elites were “my peeps.”
Bloomberg had been considering an independent bid for the presidency in 2016, and appears to have been promoting the idea to powerful Wall Street donors in his Yankee Stadium remarks. That campaign didn’t happen, with the former New York City mayor falling in line with Hillary Clinton. Now, as socialist Senator Bernie Sanders appears favorably positioned to win the Democratic nomination for President, Bloomberg has unshelved the plan, with a goal of maintaining the establishment order of the Democratic Party.
The remarks are the latest in a string of questionable old quotes the ultrabillionaire former Mayor has been lambasted for. Bloomberg has called a father and son who died of heroin overdoses a “bad family” during a conversation about the opioid epidemic, and referred to farmers and machinists as simpletons.
