Why does Hillary Clinton think she should get to dictate who President Obama nominates for SC?

Does she think he should be 'carrying her bags'? That the first black President of the United States should have to nominate a 'progressive' candidate because she says so, rather than nominate whoever he wants to? Why is she 'turning her back' on him, 'attacking him'?

tag for the sarcasm impaired.

Just thought I'd put out a few of the kind of attacks Bernie would have gotten if he had 'drawn a line in the sand' on the President's possible Supreme Court nominee. When Bernie disagrees with the President, it's an 'attack' or 'turning his back on' 'the first black President'. When Clinton does it to shore up her 'progressive' cred? Seems to be a positive, somehow.

She thinks she's already been elected.

So, of course, Pres. Obama must do what she wants.
