  •  Her possible future path to the Supreme Court (0+ / 0-)

    Part of her thinking would be about running for the Supreme Court again. The next chance is in 2013, when one of the conservative justices, Patience Roggensack, will be up for reelection. If there should be a vacancy before then it would be filled by the governor's appointment until the next spring election (who will be governor a year from now is uncertain). The next two justices to be reelected would be from the liberal side of the court, in 2015 and 2016.

    A recount that found enough votes would put her on the court now. That would happen only if election fraud is found (possible, in my estimation). An unsuccessful recount would probably end her political career ("wasting taxpayer dollars"). I hope her lawyers have all the information they need to help her make this decision.
