If Obama wins - put Hillary on the Supreme Court

So this isn't going to be a long diary, just an opinion I have developed after chewing over this whole emerging super-delegate mess. And the thought occurred to me, WHAT IF Obama was winning on the delegate count and the overall popular vote, but did not have enough delegates to stave off a brokered convention? Frankly I hate the idea of a brokered convention and super-delegates making the choice for us. So what would be something Obama could offer Hillary, to step back and let him have the nomination?
AHA! Offer her the next opening on the Supreme Court!! It would be a brilliant move (and it would drive the conservatives crazy!!) And we would have Hillary helping shaping law for our country for the next 20-30 years!!
I think that would be a fair trade, and can't imagine Hillary turning it down.
What do you think?
