IT has been said that RGB wanted HRC to appoint her replacement, not BHO, thus securing her relevancy in history. An egotistical play at best, at worst she my have singlehandedly created an opportunity for the SC to have a conservative majority for decades. It would seem that she is now desperately trying to out live Trump's presidency.
The only way he can make that deal is by having several Rep senators go along with it (plus she'd have to retire or die soon). Too much ambiguity for the Dems to agree to that (if they agree to the wall based on a future promise and Trump reneges and nominates a conservative judge, the Dems can't do anything to stop the confirmation- they'll only go for something bundled in a bill that can't be changed). It's more likely going to be DACA for the wall (if any wall deal happens), just like what was offered last year.
I've no grudge against the ol' girl. I certainly don't wish her dead. Would have been nice if she had retired, and got to chill a bit in her old age. She must have a lot of shit racing through her head when she lays it down every night. That kinda stress could fuck ya up.
I won't give her shit for taking some time off, but I do believe the fact she hasn't retired yet is a tacit admission that the Supreme Court is every bit as much a political entity as the other two branches of federal government. And for that, she and the rest of them can suck my balls.
