Hillary Clinton, the former first lady and NY senator and current Secretary of State to President Barack Obama, was named  a possible Supreme Court nominee by Utah’s Sen. Orrin Hatch while appearing on NBC’s Today Show.

Clinton’s first opportunity to take one of the Court’s nine seats would presumably come with the retiring of Justice John Paul Stevens.

“I happen to like Hillary Clinton, I think she’s done a good job for the Democrats,” Hatch said, “and I have high respect for her, and think a great deal of her.”

Other potential candidates for the seat include Federal Judge Merrick Garland, Federal Appellate Judge Diane Wood and Solicitor General Elena Kagan.
