" Hillary Clinton is a private citizen so  her opinion affects the political process as much as yours or mine" ...really?  people put me and you in the same category as her speaking on national TV ?
..do you really believe that, or...?


Yes, the opinion of Hillary Clinton, as well as those of "news" anchors, does not affect change to the political process.



"There have many times in our history when the Supreme Court has had an even number of justices"
..so what does that have to do with having a contested election while we have an even number of justices?,nothing, ...and under the present political climate ?..nothing.


Ever presidential election in U.S. history (except for two) have been "contested elections." I'm not sure how the 2020 presidential election will be any different. It is highly contested. You've yet to provide even a single reason why the current composition of the Supreme Court even slightly relates to that fact, or even why the Supreme Court will play a role in the election.




"Even a basic understanding of how the Supreme Court works shows that the Supreme Court rules only on cases that are appealed to it"
...so you are saying there is no way democrats would ever appeal to the supreme court in an attempt to win an election?...or "drag it out" as they say...


I'm saying nothing of the sort, and please stop the straw man arguments.



 this has happened hundreds of times throughout U.S. history, and it has never once proven to be a "constitutional disaster."

I doubt anything associated with democrats right now has ever happened in the history of the united states. we have never had such hatred expressed in such a public manner or seen the media acting on behalf or one party or the other so blatantly while pretending to be "news".


That statement manifests an ignorance of American history in general, and an ignorance of the history of U.S. presidential elections in particular.

There have been countless times in our history where "we have had such hatred expressed in such a public manner," and equally as many times where "the media acted on behalf or one party or the other so blatantly."




we have never ever had a contested election between trump and joe biden in this political climate while only having an even number of justices.


That statement is undeniably true. It's aggressively irrelevant.

And, again, you've yet to explain why the fact that there is currently an even number f justices on the Court is even tangentially relevant.

Her death and the vacancy it leaves on the Supreme Court will now add more fire to an already hot presidential campaign. Will Trump try to make an appointment and have it ratified by the Republicans in the Senate. Or, will he take the negligent road and leave the seat open until after the election, only six weeks away.


That shipped has already sailed. Trump had already prepared two lists of potential nominees, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced, before Justice Ginsberg's body was even cold,


before Justice Ginsberg's body was even cold, <- you are correct, the list was prepared years before her "body was cold"
its disgusting the way you politicize such a somber occasion before her body is even cold.


Irony, it seems, doesn't resonate with you...






oh i've seen irony....everything out of the lefts mouths the past 5 years has been ironic.
i'm just tired of the blatant gas lighting, its just lame anymore. i can't believe i used to be a democrat.but then again they didn't used to be like this.

Odd how you claim she is politicizing something when all she did was point out what the politicians did...

we may not need to wait til december, news anchors have already begun talking about the dangers of going into this election (which WILL be contested) with an even number of justices.

stay tuned to see why it's tangentially relevant !
