1. She'll have twenty! She's a tough woman!

I would be thrilled to have her for two more decades.

13. Three more years would be fine

First time there’s a Democratic President and Senate she needs to step aside.

15. I understand and appreciate your pragmatism

Worst case scenario where the Rump appoints himself president for life...

Anyway, I like RBG and want to see her active (even if it's outside of the SCOTUS) for a long time yet.

He would get assassinated in about 5 seconds.

Obama and 57 Democrats would have picked a fine replacement.

32. Obama had control of congress for 72 days, unfortunately.

Out of 8 years of office.

And even then it relied on Lieberman.

39. Yeah, that is the number of days the Senate was in session.

With a Democratic majority. I think the House was a wee bit longer.

40. That's incorrect

We controlled the Senate for the first few years of Obama’s first term. For the first two we had a 57-43 majority.

42. Nope

We got rid of that for most nominees and made clear that we would do the same thing for SCOTUS nominees if they tried to block a qualified pick.

RBG absolutely could have been replaced in 2010.

25. Scalia died while Obama was in office

remember how that worked out

We don't need Ginsburg or any liberal justice to kick the bucket until Dems control the Senate and presidency. Trump's already got 2 supreme court picks so far, swinging the court to the right for a long time.

47. Me, too. I was disappointed that she didn't.

She could have timed it right.

The thing is...she may not have a say in how long she lasts. Anything can happen at that age. A stroke or any number of things could affect her brain.

It's risky, to say the least. We have to win in 2020. That's all there is to it.

"I think I have about at least five more years". She's not saying five. She is saying she has what it will take. Hopeful words for me.

30. You go, girl!l

The amazing thing about Ginsberg in addition to her judicial clout is the fact she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer ten years ago, a cancer that has a terrible track record in survival stats. And yet here she is giving a 5-year prophesy and running around, exercising, doing appearances like the Energizer Bunny.

I am in absolute awe! May you live forever, RBG. You're certainly teaching us lesser mortals how it's done.
