Jusrtice Ginsburg's remarks last Friday are now in the C-SPAN video library. I had time enough today to watch and was pleased to see her looking as durable as ever, having lost none of her quiet toughness. Her terse sense of humor is delightful and her insights as sharp as ever. Mentioning the eagerness with which the Court's decision(s) regarding PPACA are being anticipated she quoted an unnamed journalist who said "At the Supreme Court those who talk don't know and those who know don't talk."
In this clip she notes how decisions of the court can result in legislative action, citing her own dissent in another opinion which resulted in the Lille Ledbetter Act.
It's hard to know if she may be preparing us for another dissenting opinion with the hope that corrective legislative action may result.
Here are those tea leaves.
