Justice Ginsburg Not Leaving Court 'Anytime Soon'


Democrats and liberals have a nightmare vision of the Supreme Court's future: President Obama is defeated for re-election next year and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, at 78 the oldest justice, soon finds her health will not allow her to continue on the bench.

But Ginsburg could retire now and allow Obama to name a like-minded successor whose confirmation would be in the hands of a Democratic-controlled Senate. "She has in her power the ability to prevent a real shift in the balance of power on the court," said Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the University of California at Irvine law school.

A new Republican president may not place a conservative on the court. It's happened before they've put a moderate and even a liberal or two on the court. Just sayin' there's no gaurantees. It's 50/50 but nil with Obama.
