Removed two malignant nodules from her left lung. Hopefully she makes it through the rest of Trump's term. Justices ought to be retiring from the supreme court, not staying until they are carried out inside of a hearse.

Agreed, but until that’s actual practice let’s hope Ginsburg is there until they carry her out in a hearse.

Two more years. Just hang in there two more years. Then, a mass exodus of sitting justices to get a new batch in with longer expiration dates.

I mean, I absolutely hate the idea of partisan justices, but if the only way to counter it being stacked one way is to balance the stacking... so be it. It feels filthy, but too much one way or the other at this point (with as polarized as our society is) would be catastrophic.

She only have to last one year. As we all know any supreme court vacancies in the last year go to the next president. whistle

I'm not a fan of her jurisprudence, but I wish her continued health, because she's a human being with family and friends.

I could see that backfiring, Supreme Court vacancies were a major reason Trump was elected. I think if you create a situation where the next president gets to choose, it opens the miniscule chance Trump (or Pence) has to win again. Democrats may be better served lobbying for a deal for the best of bad choices rather than gamble their base will deliver in 2020.

It is possible for the country to reign in an out of control supreme court by expanding it. I'm not sure if it can be made smaller except on vacancies tho.

Lobbying for a deal? If you seriously think the GOP's lust for power is going to be constrained by any notions of fair play or decency, then you have not been paying any attention for the last two years.

If a vacancy opens up in the last year of Trump's presidency, the GOP will ram it right through, even if they have to do it in a lame duck session. Bet on it.

Ironically, her fall and broken ribs may have saved her life.
