  1. Obama calls on Senate not to fill Ginsburg's vacancy until after election "Four and a half years ago, when Republicans refused to hold a hearing or an up-or-down vote on Merrick Garland, they invented the principle that the Senate shouldn’t fill an open seat on the Supreme Court before a new president was sworn in," Obama said. "A basic principle of the law — and of everyday fairness — is that we apply rules with consistency, and not based on what’s convenient or advantageous in the moment," he continued. "The rule of law, the legitimacy of our courts, the fundamental workings of our

  3. Joe Biden @JoeBiden · 7m Ruth Bader Ginsburg stood for all of us. She was an American hero, a giant of legal doctrine, and a relentless voice in the pursuit of that highest American ideal: Equal Justice Under Law. May her memory be a blessing to all people who cherish our Constitution and its promise.
  4. @SethAbramson I think that if McConnell tries to install a new Justice before January 20, 2021—given his past statements and actions on the question when the president was a Democrat—America will fall into a domestic "Cold War." I *don't* mean violence, but I do mean a historic civil fracture. The theft of the Supreme Court by Mitch McConnell under Obama—the Garland scandal—was already an event that Democrats would not and will not forget for a century. What McConnell is going to try to do now risks doing permanent, conspicuous and truly sc
  5. David Gergen, ex-White House official on McConnell plan to rush through Ginsburg replacement - “Mitch McConnell has just thrown down the gauntlet, we’re going to have a titanic fight over this,” Gergen exclaimed. “Yes, as Jeffrey [Toobin] has said, it will mobilize a lot of people on the right, the hunger still to overturn Roe vs Wade to get social issues on the 6-3 court, they will think Donald Trump has delivered on his promises.” “This will unleash a fury among Democrats, for all the obvious reasons,” he continued. “It’s so brazenly contemptuous of fair play — it’s hypocriti
  6. 8 Ruth Bader Ginsburg Quotes That Define the Supreme Court Justice's Legacy- "So now the perception is, yes, women are here to stay. And when I'm sometimes asked 'When will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court]?' and I say 'When there are nine,' people are shocked. But there'd been nine men, and nobody's ever raised a question about that."—Ruth Bader Ginsburg, speaking at the 10th Circuit Bench & Bar Conference in 2012 "Dissents speak to a future age. It's not simply to say, 'My colleagues are wrong and I would do it this way.' But the greatest dissents do become court opin

  8. What Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Death Means for America The Supreme Court vacancy will surely inflame an already-angry nation. "............But her passing less than two months before the presidential election also tosses one more lit match into the tinderbox of national politics in 2020: It will surely inflame a deeply polarized country already riven by a deadly pandemic, a steep economic downturn, and civil unrest in its major cities....... The more salient question is not whether McConnell would try to confirm Trump’s nominee but whether his GOP majority would go

  12. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Champion Of Gender Equality, Dies At 87 ".........Architect of the legal fight for women's rights in the 1970s, Ginsburg subsequently served 27 years on the nation's highest court, becoming its most prominent member.
