President Obama’s former adviser, David Axelrod, revealed in a book that Hillary Clinton was seriously considered as a possible Supreme Court nominee when Justice John Paul Stevens stepped down, as reported by MSNBC. However, Hillary Clinton told Fox News that she would never have considered such a position, adding that she had “no interest in doing that.” However, later in the same interview, she also sounded lukewarm about a run for President after her unsuccessful 2008 bid.

There were many in the Democratic Party who have wanted Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who now is 82, to step down and allow President Obama to nominate a Democratic Justice, but she shows no willingness to slow down. When Clinton left her position as Secretary of State, Axelrod said there was a gentle coaxing of Justice Ginsberg to retire with the implication that Hillary Clinton could replace her.

With the possibility of Mitt Romney as the frontrunner for the GOP once again, Axelrod discussed the tension between Romney and President Obama, according to the Daily News. Axelrod was “irritated” by Romney, who insinuated that Obama won only because he brought out the black vote. After the election, Romney called Obama to congratulate him and said, snidely, according to Axelrod, “‘You really did a good job getting out the vote in places like Cleveland and Milwaukee, ‘ in other words—black people. That’s what he thinks this is all about.” Axelrod, according to the Daily News adds that President Obama was “unsmiling during the call and slightly irritated when it was over.”
