I never voted for Bill Clinton. I might have, but when he ordered the execution of Ricky Ray Rector, a brain-damaged convict just before the 1992 “Super Tuesday” primaries, I wrote him off as an opportunist for whom I would never vote.

I’ll never vote for Hillary Clinton. She strikes me as someone cut from the same political cloth as her husband. They both remind me of the appointees George W. Bush sends before Senate committees: they tell voters what they think they want to hear, leave themselves wiggle room and once in office make decisions based on polls rather than principle.

Which is not to say the Clintons don’t have their good points. Both are intelligent, curious and quick to learn. As their early careers indicate, they both seem to have good instincts.

The problem with the Clintons is they are corruptible and condition seems incurable.

The answer, I think, is to put them in a place where they can’t be corrupted. That place may be the Supreme Court. Both Clintons are attorneys and their experience makes them as qualified to sit on the court as any justice there. In more than one case, better qualified.

A lifetime appointment would give them the attention they crave while removing them from temptations they so clearly cannot resist.

Who knows, a Clinton on the court might even stay the execution of a brain-damaged convict.
