No cancer survivor wishes cancer upon someone else. We are all just a little bit superstitious. While I disagree with much of RBG's positions I feel that she is a good person and I absolutely have a profound respect for her.. I am so sorry to hear of her illness. I know the fear anyone who has gone thru it has. That dread when you go for a follow up and you wait for the results. People who haven't been through it, can sympathize or empathize, but you don't know.

RBG is a petite woman who casts the shadow of a giant. If she were ever to visit my home, I would welcome her as an American hero, because she has earned it.

One of her greatest legal victories was persuading the Supreme Court in 1976 that Oklahoma's law was unconstitutional which made males wait until age 21 to buy 3.2% beer while females could buy at 18. Unjust gender and age discrimination.

Wish her all the best.

Hate to be political, but I really don't want another conservative judge if she steps down.

I say this as a Republican before anyone jumps down my throat.

SCOTUS needs to have a fair balance since they affect/influence the whole country for 30 years.

We need a moderate dem as the next SCOTUS, would give it a decent balance.

Here is the picture of RBG's replacement. She almost got picked last time around, so she has already been vetted. She is all queued up and ready to go.

Shouldn’t judges be non-partisan?

Sounds palliative...like they have shrunk the tumor for the time being.

Well yes, I just mean balanced. But of course they're going to have their personal leanings.

I would not, in a million years, want an extremely right or left Supreme Court.

Stepping down with Trump still in office is not for the betterment of the country...we don't need the court packed with any more Activist Judges like Trumps first 2 picks.

Well we need to go to the Biden rule and have Joe explain the definition of an election year. It doesn’t matter anyway McConnell already said he wouldn’t abide by the so called rule.

Gorsuch and the others want to overturn same sex marriage.

These conservative activist judges are a danger to our country...we need good justices like Ginsburg on this court...we don't need another activist judge that Trump will put in there.
