Bill Could Replace Elected Hillary As Senator

From Fox News:

The Next Senator From New York, Bill Clinton?

Monday, February 19, 2007

WASHINGTON – If Hillary Clinton is elected president, the next senator from New York could be her husband, Bill Clinton.

Supporters are touting that scenario in the event the seat currently held by Mrs. Clinton opens up as she moves to higher office. New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, a Democrat, would be tasked with appointing someone to fill the open Senate seat for the remaining two years of Clinton’s term.

"As a senator, he’d be a knockout,” Harold Ickes, an adviser for Sen. Clinton and a White House aide to the former president, told the newspaper. “He knows issues, he loves public policy and he’s a good politician.” …

Could Clinton still fit the bill? One of the most popular presidents with black voters, he spoke Sunday to the annual meeting of the New York State Association of Black and Puerto Rican Legislators, where he received a standing ovation.

"I know how come I’m here — I’m here because I’m a stand-in for Hillary," he said.

At the event, he spoke about health care, renewable energy technology and education, all issues that Sen. Clinton has focused on during her campaign…

Yes, the presidential elections are a long way off.

But it is never too early to recognize the potential horrors that could be unleashed with a Hillary Rodham Clinton victory.
