Could Bill Clinton take over his wifeâ€™s Senate seat if he becomes the first first husband? Some think so.
The Examiner: Some mull idea of Sen. Bill Clinton
If Hillary Rodham Clinton wins the presidency, some top Democrats would like to see her husband, former President Bill Clinton, appointed to serve out Hillaryâ€™s unexpired Senate term.
â€œAs a senator, heâ€™d be a knockout,â€ said Harold Ickes, who was once a top White House aide to Bill Clinton and now gives behind-the-scenes advice to Hillary. â€œHe knows issues, he loves public policy and heâ€™s a good politician.â€
Some Democrats and political analysts say Bill Clinton would thrive in the worldâ€™s greatest deliberative body, much like Lyndon Johnson did before he became president.
â€œPresident Clinton would excel in the Senate,â€ said Paul Begala, who helped Bill Clinton get elected and served in the White House as a top aide.
â€œWhy not?â€ Begala added. â€œHe excelled as attorney general and governor of Arkansas, he excelled as president and heâ€™s been a model of the modern Senate spouse.â€
Larry Sabato, director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, agreed.
â€œClinton is a natural for the Senate,â€ Sabato said. â€œHe loves to talk and schmooze. He could be a great vote-organizer. Majority Leader Clinton?â€
A TWOfer and another reason not to vote for Hillary.
Flap thought the polls said voters were tired of the same ol’ politicos.
And why not a three-some?
