Commentary: I’m a Republican. Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death is both a loss and a legal opportunity.
The passing of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is truly a loss for the country. Her 27 years on the Supreme Court were marked by a passionate defense of civil liberties and a commitment to civil discourse, the latter being evident by her close friendship with the late Associate Justice Antonin Scalia. As a lifelong Republican, I admired her for both.
