A liberal professor is calling for Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden to nominate Michelle Obama to the Supreme Court should he win the election in November.
In an op-ed for The Hill, Emerson College professor Roger House claimed Saturday that Biden would make history by nominating the former First Lady because she would advance “racial and gender justice” and quell “Republican efforts to bum-rush a replacement.”
“What it means is that the Biden campaign cannot simply propose to nominate a woman of traditional qualifications for the court. If it is to make history, then it must spotlight a woman who embodies the dream of the civil rights movement. That person is former First Lady Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama,” House wrote.
