Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg just shocked her supporters. She’s announced an abrupt change, and the political world has been turned upside-down.
Appearing in Arkansas for an event sponsored by the Clinton School of Public Service, Ginsburg said discussed her recent health scares. She said, “I think my work is what saved me,” noting that it distracted her from her ailments.
Ginsburg’s full quote: “I think my work is what saved me because instead of dwelling on my physical discomforts if I have an opinion to write or a brief to read, I know I’ve just got to get it done so I have to get over it.”
This is definitely an about-face from the perception people have had for several months. Ginsburg has been practically a no-show, with some wondering if she was preparing to retire from the bench.
However, based upon her recent comments, she doesn’t appear to be slowing down. Her work on the Supreme Court forced her to push through and persevere.
While Ginsburg’s rulings and opinions have been too liberal, one thing is certain: She has certainly displayed an American work ethic. Still, many observers believe that President Trump will be nominating a replacement in the next few years.
