      How was that wimping out. Two of the best and most consistantly liberal justices around...

      That comment doesn't make any sense, Clinton did not wimp out.

        with 58 Democrats in the Senate, Ginsburg and Breyer were wimp outs.  Otherwise, Orrin Hatch, who recommended the two nominees to President Clinton, would have said he was duped.  He knew at the time Ginsburg and Breyer were the best Republicans could do.

    •  Yeah (0+ / 0-)

      Someone who, during her tenure on the DC Circuit, votes with Robert Bork 85% of the time and votes with Abner Mikva and Patricia Wald 38% of the time on votes that weren't unanimous -- that's a real left-winger!  Someone who votes most often with Ken Starr -- again, a raging liberal.

      Compared to Mario Cuomo, Laurence Tribe, Stephen Reinhardt, Nathaniel Jones, Mikva, Wald, and Harry Edwards, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a wimp-out.

    •  Well, has Ruth Bader Ginsburg ... (0+ / 0-)

      ... ever written opinions like this?  Or this?  How about this?
