Biden says 'Yes' he would nominate Obama to Supreme Court

Joe Biden was asked if he would nominate former President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court, and his answer was "if he'd take it, yes." This information comes from Wall Street Journal reporter, Ken Thomas, who's busy covering Democrats running for President in 2020.

Thomas posted this on his Twitter, saying "Biden asked here in Washington, Iowa, if he would ever nominate former President Obama to serve on the Supreme Court. “If he’d take it, yes,” Biden says."

It's not clear who asked the question or where the question was asked, but Thomas appears to be a very reliable source who posts quotes and information during his time covering the candidates.


Thomas posted another interesting message about Biden, about him being around a long time vs people wanting someone fresh in office. It stated, "I’ll be very blunt with you. It’s totally legitimate for people to say, ‘Biden, you’ve been around a long time ... we need something fresh,” Biden said in Fairfield. “Well, the reason I’m running is because I’ve been around, I’ve been around a long time."

The interesting take on Biden nominating Obama to the Supreme Court is that Obama still hasn't endorsed Biden yet. In fact, it does not seem like Obama will endorse his former Vice President of two terms at all.

At some point it was suggested that Obama doesn't think Biden connects with the voters very well. We also reported a while back that Obama hasn't endorsed Bernie Sanders either.

Back in June, it was reported that a former Obama staffer didn't think Joe Biden could go the distance.

So there seems to be one big disconnect with Joe Biden and Barack Obama more than anyone else.

As President and Vice President for eight years, you'd think they would build a friendship throughout running the country, and maybe they have. But, we're still not 100% sure why Obama won't give his former teammate an endorsement for 2020. Or, maybe Obama sees Biden the same way many Americans do and that's more than enough reasons for him not to endorse.

Either way, here we are getting closer each day and Joe Biden can't even get his old boss of eight years to give him a pat on the back.

Makes you wonder why.
