2. Great point.

Not sure it's going to make a difference, but it is a very important point to keep in mind.

3. Sure it applies

As much as it did then. Which is that it is a rhetorically valid point... but carries no legal weight. There is no "conflict of interest" clause in the Constitution's nomination language.
