Joe Biden, in the Democratic primary, assessing who should serve on the Supreme Court:
I have taken on those justices who, in fact, show no balance — they are ideologues. We have enough ideologues. We have enough professors on the bench. I want someone who ran for dog catcher. I want someone — literally, not a joke. When Hillary’s husband asked me for his advice when he was appointing people, I wanted to go to people and so did he — we couldn’t. Four people turned it down. We wanted to get someone who, in fact, knew what it was to live life.
So let me get this straight… a dog-catcher is qualified to be on the Supreme Court, but a former mayor and recently-elected governor is not qualified for the presidency?
