    Didn't she just miss arguments for the first time in her career last week? Could be wrong, but I remember seeing a news snippet about it.

    The writing is on the wall. When you're that old, you don't just pop up fresh as a daisy after cancer surgery, and broken ribs. She's a tough old broad, but I think even she must be recognizing her limits. I believe she'll step down within the year. That job is demanding as hell, and I think she'll realize that she can no longer meet those demands.

    Would be a smart bi partisan amendment to go after. Would guarantee a dirty trick can't be used by a power with a super majority, and would dust off the amendment process

    Obviously I don't want her to die. even though she's on the doorstep.

    At some point if she's having serious medical concerns she should probably retire.
    not likely, but she should.

    This doesn't even make sense. The last democratic presidential candidate was a hawk on Syria.

    You strike me as a serious student of history and well-read presidential historian.

    Nah, the quote is just out of context.

    Even at this present moment Trump's entire time in office thus far can be described in two words: A joke. Retrospective history and his resulting legacy will be even less kind.

    Personally, honestly, I don't want to see him turn it around because he deserves all the mockery and contempt that is coming his way. But I offered a theoretical move he could make to radically change the dynamic and the narrative of his presidency.

    I know he lacks both the emotional self-control and the principles to make such a decision. I think the hostile, frenzied reptile-brained comments here from members of his base speak for the mind of the man himself very accurately.

    It would be very interesting to see the left react to her stepping down voluntarily. I wonder if they would actually respect her decision, or vilify her for giving Trump another pick.

    Unfortunately for her the left and their sympathetic Press would turn on her overnight like a pack of hyenas. She would go from "the Notorious RBG", to "the Infamous RBG".

    It will take a lot more than people having a problem with the system for any type of civil. As long as the majority have a house, food, cars, there not doing shit.

    She's a legend whether you agree on her politics and if she's too sick people will trust her on that decision. That will be the general attitude on both sides.

    Naturally, there will be random internet trolls blowing it up to be something more, but that's just a some folks justifying their own need to overreact. You fantasizing about "the left" gathering like a pack of hyenas to attack her character because she's fallen ill says more about you than it does "the left".

    And the Dems have behaved so graciously that Trump should consider throwing them a bone? The power of SC selection is in Trump's hands. The Dems played poorly their shenanigans and demonizing.

    Political bi-partisanship isn't about "throwing bones".

    He's talking about the same people the argued the humanity of MS-13. The derangement is real.
