Justice Ginsburg shows us (again) that law is not politics

I have decried the calls for Justice Ginsburg to resign and the blatantly political calculations that drive those calls. See here and here. In a rare interview with the New York Times on Sunday, Ginsburg explains that she will retire when her health declines and not before. She is unconcerned with the political leanings of the President who will nominate her successor. And that is true even though the Justice believes that the present Court is unusually activist.

Thanks to Justice Ginsburg, even legal realists (like me) can still believe that law is not politics.
