    So you have no problem with Supreme Court Justices making public political statements. I see.

    Id say this about a conservative justice as well...ANY supreme court justices that waxes politically ought to be removed from their seat on the court. As the third component of our system of checks and balances, their lifetime appointment was meant to ensure Constitutional impartiality. I would say of the 9 currently seated, MAYBE Roberts and Kennedy should stay. MAYBE.

    The Republicans could win it if they would stop running the candidate the left keeps choosing for them. They need to run a conservative who is not afraid to be a conservative. Romney? McCain? What kind of choices are these for conservatives?

    I don't much care who they run for President, I want Dave Ramsey for VP. Could you imagine seeing him in a budget negotiation?

    At this point I think she has as much of an idea as anyone else. The election is years away.

    She was discussing the timing of her potential retirement from the court. For her to comment on the likelihood and hope that a like minded justice is appointed in her place is entirely appropriate. Kennedy and Scalia have made similar comments in the past.

I believe Jon Huntsman could have beaten President Obama.
    Your missing the forest for the trees: Fox news is responding to demographic demands, not making them. Also, an activist base is an issue for the democrats, as well. This is why Obama went through great pains casting himself as a stalwart progressive in the 2004 primary and Hillary as an establishment type DC centrist. You'll also note his shift to the center was almost immediate after securing the primary.

    So the difference between the two is a matter of degree and how much influence that base carries, and the ability to still appeal to it while courting the centrists

    Thats a pretty easy prediction. With the GOP self-destructing at the hands of the teabaggers...it is only adding to their already heavy burden of problems that they are facing in 2016. If Hilary runs, there isn't a Republican in the current field that will beat her. It will be another Clinton/Dole, Reagan/Mondale landslide.

    Because she was commenting as a citizen and not acting within her role as a SCJ
