That successor could very well be former President Bill Clinton. It is very common that the spouse is appointed as the replacement for a vacated seat, usually following the death of the elected spouse. If Bill Clinton is appointed, it would the third time in US history that a former President has entered service in the legislature. John Quincy Adams entered the House of Representatives in 1830 following his term as President and served until his death in 1848. Andrew Johnson was elected Tennessee Senator in 1875 only 7 years after acquittal of impeachment charges, but died a few months later.
President William Howard Taft served from 1909-1913. The heaviest president at 300lbs and the last President with facial hair, was appointed to the US Supreme Court in 1921 where he served as Chief Justice until 1930. He remains the only person to head both the Executive and Judicial branches on government.
