She could have done this in 2016 and Obama would have gotten another pick. But she waited, gambling that Hillary would win. Now Trump gets the pick.

She chose poorly. Now the man she hates will choose the person to replace her. Now that's Justice with a capital J.

There was a vacancy through 2016 that Obama nominated someone for.
He didn’t get confirmed.

This is proof that they thought the election was rigged.

Yes. the arrogant scumbag chose, and she chose poorly. Now she must face the facts of her stupidity.

Schadenfreude is a sin and an irresistible temptation at that.

Obama would not have appointed a nominee in the mold of a traditional feminist. Ginsburg probably didn’t trust him. She probably wanted to retire.

You mean at some point between 2009-2014, when the Democrats controlled the Senate. Had she retired in 2016, McConnell would have given Obama’s nominee the Merrick Garland treatment and kept the Senate in session so that Obama couldn’t make even a recess appointment.

If I were a Leftist, I’d hate Ginsburg for not having retired in 2012, when the Democrats were in danger of losing both the Senate and the presidency. If she dies or retires during Trump’s watch, and with a GOP Senate, we’ll finally get an unabashedly conservative Supreme Court with Roberts as a superfluous sixth vote (and just three liberals).

“she waited, gambling that Hillary would win.”

I think you hit the nail on the head. Hahaha! Hey, Ruthie - Hillary didn’t win. You can’t die for eight more years. The Lord works in mysterious ways.

“She could have done this in 2016 and Obama would have gotten another pick. But she waited, gambling that Hillary would win. Now Trump gets the pick.”

The Dems are so arrogant, they were so sure that Hillary would win. Now because of their elitist attitude, she has to try to make it another six years, or maybe two. Not sure if she can do either.

Thank you Ruth for not doing that.

The Clintons never had a more loyal ally.
They need to thank you and tell you it's alright to let go.

Perhaps it was her assumption that all the “inevitable Hillary” propaganda was so true it was not even worth contemplating the alternative scenario.

Or perhaps she cares not a whit for what happens after she dies and is merely clinging to power with all she’s got to her dying day, like a typical tyrant.

One of the greatest political miscalculations ever.

Yes, nobody thought Trump was going to win in 2016 and that Hillary would be a shoo-in. RBG likely had it all planned out to retire after Hillary's inauguration giving her two SC picks right off the bat (remember that Scalia's spot had still not been filled).

Democrats had visions of a beaming Hillary making two extreme-left SC picks at the same time.

Then Trump happened.

She is like your typical liberal that is so power hungry that she ignores the future for her own self interest.
