If the Democrats lose control of the Senate in November, there will be expressions of despair: Doesn’t she know that she could die at any minute? Why isn’t it her priority to make sure the Court house is tidy before she leaves? Ginsburg’s dissent, to Weisberg, is a strong one:

“Who do you think President Obama could appoint at this very day, given the boundaries that we have? If I resign any time this year, he could not successfully appoint anyone I would like to see in the court. [The Senate Republicans] took off the filibuster for lower federal court appointments, but it remains for this court. So anybody who thinks that if I step down, Obama could appoint someone like me, they’re misguided.”

The foresight R.B?G has continues to prove why she is beloved and her tenacity will ensure the Court stays true to its vision.

Sometimes people try to destroy you, precisely because they recognize your power — not because they don’t see it, but because they see it and they don’t want it to exist.

Good point!

I hope that someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight, and that’s all they do. They don’t pull away. They don’t look at your face. They don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms, without an ounce of selfishness in it.
