Expectations among Senate Democrats are rising that if elected president, Barack Obama will reward Sen. Hillary Clinton's support with a Supreme Court nomination when one opens. "It's the talk up here," says a key Senate aide. While confirmation would be difficult, the move is being encouraged by her supporters as a way for Obama to acknowledge Clinton's historic run for the White House. "It would have a more lasting impact than being president," the aide says. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tells us: "Her candidacy was just a bright, bright moment for us, and she may run again."
