The President keeps/gives her her relevance behind the scenes.

    she wasn't all that successful. She was an Affirmative Action hire at Sidley and Austin where she didn't last and she got big raise at another office after her husband was elected senator. She only went to Princeton and Harvard due to her race

    How exactly would Obama getting to appoint another Supreme Court justice be "a huge boost for the GOP"?

    Do you have any evidence to support that? Or is it just your personal opinion, for whatever it's worth?

    What gives Lady Broadbeam away as a third-rater is her senior thesis at Princeton, some of which I've read on the Internet. It is a lot of cliche, I'm-a-victim PC tripe about the trials of having been black at Princeton, and how she had succeeded in spite of it. It's such garbage that any smart high school senior would be embarrassed to have their name on it.

    Well if she is sick, she ain't the only one.

    Why not? Congress has the power "to raise and support armies." I don't see what requires those all to be land armies--in fact I believe France has called its air force the "Armee de l'Air." That would make no more sense than to say Congress' power "to provide and maintain a navy" allows for aircraft carriers, because they are ships, but not for the aircraft to go on them. In any case, there already was an Army Air Force. The purpose of the federal law that established the Air Force as a separate branch of the military after WWII was to recognize the growing importance of a force that already had existed for decades, by placing it under its own administration.

    One of the most important reasons for drafting the Constitution, which created the United States, was to improve Americans' ability to defend themselves from foreign threats. It had only been several years since the American forces had very narrowly escaped being defeated--once and for all--by the British. No reasonable person can believe that the Framers of the Constitution did not mean to give Congress the power to create whatever military forces our national security might require, even if they could not know exactly what weapons those forces might some day use.

    Its a good thing you don't mean her any harm.
