My wife was tolerant of my crush on Mrs. Peel. Forty and fifty years later when I saw Diana Rigg in contemporary performances on Public Television, she was still one of the most attractive women it has ever been my pleasure to watch perform. She always struck me as someone I would have genuinely enjoyed knowing.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court’s Feminist Icon
Quote
As Justice Ginsburg passed her 80th birthday and 20th anniversary on the Supreme Court bench during President Barack Obama’s second term, she shrugged off a chorus of calls for her to retire in order to give a Democratic president the chance to name her replacement. She planned to stay “as long as I can do the job full steam,” she would say, sometimes adding, “There will be a president after this one, and I’m hopeful that that president will be a fine president.”
OUCH!
How sadly naive and self-serving. frown

But, on the other hand, in keeping with the non-politicality of the Court.

Rehnquist didn't retire to guarantee that Bush would select his successor, nor have any justices retired in response to Graham's recent call for them to do so to enable Trump to pick their replacements.

I've got to give her credit for upholding the integrity of the Court and hope that same integrity governs should the election wind up on its doorstep.

My apologies, RBG.
