So far only one supreme court seat is empty, and it belonged to a conservative. So replacing it with another conservative won't make much of a dent. But if Ruth Bader Ginsburg (who is 83) drops dead at any point over the next four to eight years, could the court sway to a socialy conservative direction enough to reverse the left's "progress"? And what if Stephen Gerald Breyer joins her? in 2024, Ginsburg would be 92 and Breyer would be 86.
