That would be great if she did - and I to would thank her for her service - and wish her a happy retirement.

However - the justices tend to play political games - the lifetime appointment was meant to keep the Court free from politics - unfortunately, many justices will either extend their service to coincide with the election of a president that aligns with their ideology - or sometimes drop out when they can be assured that a president that agrees with them politically will appoint an acceptable replacement.

Composition of the Senate also plays a part in this intricate dance.

I preict that Justice Ginsburg sticks around if Romney wins - and that Justice Scalia and/or Justice Kennedy will opt to retire.

Trolling?

I listed those to cover all potential bases - (a) contraceptives - "we were right but didn't do enough",

(b) turnout - "we were right but weren't motivated",

(c) stolen - "the other side robbed us",

and ...

(d) our ideas are wrong - "we understand that the election represents a rejection of our failed policies, and we vow in the future to move closer to the center so that we won't become irrelevant for the foreseeable future".
