Clinton on SCOTUS nomination: 'Never'

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday she'd "never" be interested in an appointment to the Supreme Court.

Clinton, a former senator and graduate of Yale Law School, said that President Barack Obama shouldn't choose her to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court when Justice John Paul Stevens retires at the end of this term.

"I do not and have never wanted to be a judge. Never," Clinton said when asked if she'd be interested in the appointment. "That's never been anything I've even let cross my mind, because it's not in my personality."

The president has been looking at a number of women for his short list for the Supreme Court opening, including Solicitor General Elena Kagan.

The White House dismissed suggestions that Clinton might be on the short list for the nomination in mid-April after Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) dropped her name as a potentially amenable nominee.
