Hillary's Senate seat

Ann Althouse loves the idea of Bill Clinton getting Hillary's Senate seat.

  • She wanted his old job, but he'd be getting her old job. I love the narrative arc.
  • I love the idea of a former President going on to another government position -- instead of going about giving speeches or attempting to perform good deeds or playing the elder statesman role. Get back in there and do something.
  • It would be so entertaining having Bill in there mixing it up with the other Senators. Will his narcissism allow him to submit to it? Come on! Show us how your brilliant skills can transform the Senate.
  • It would be nice to have a Senator who you absolutely know isn't dreaming of becoming President.


Unfortunately he is not interested. He can't imagine sharing the limelight with 99 other senators, all with more seniority, and hence power, than him.

I know Obama was bummed about his plan to assemble as many old-timer illuminatis as possible.. I don't blame Bill for not wanting it, though.
