Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 75, visited students at the New England School of Law Friday, telling them there could be an opening on the Supreme Court soon, saying the justices only take pictures together when a new justice joins the court.If Ginsburg does step down there's no doubt Obama will replace her with a woman. And wouldn't it be something if that woman was Janice Rogers Brown? I know it's a hell of a longshot when you consider that Obama's a liberal, but Justice Brown is more than qualified and despite what liberals have said about her, she's actually shown to have both libertarian and socialist leanings. If there's an opening on SCOTUS soon, Janice Rogers Brown should be heavily considered for a spot.
"We haven't had any of those for some time, but surely we will soon," Ginsburg said.
The Supreme Court justice spoke at the school's annual "Law Day," and her talk covered a range of topics, from a tutorial on the landmark 1967 Loving v. Virginia decision on the legality of interracial marriage to the status of gender in the U.S.
Ginsburg told the audience of about 150 students that she's lived long enough to see such cases make big changes in the nation, changes that have allowed for the inclusion of two women on the Supreme Court and an African-American president who is a product of an interracial marriage."Considering how far we have come, there is good cause for optimism about our country's future," Ginsburg said.
