Amy Coney Barrett replaces the much-admired Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died still on the bench at the age of 87. While Ginsburg was a liberal, Barrett is considered a conservative, and will have some 40 years to prove it, if she lives so long, since being a Supreme Court Justice is a life-time appointment. If the Democrats win the Presidential election, there is talk that they will consider extending the court to more justices and putting on term limits.
While their respective supporters remain firm behind Clinton and Trump, many voters are terrified either will win! Some are turning politics off, watching football games and thinking about planting their Spring Gardens!
On the heels of the GOP Convention, where Trump thriumped, is the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia. Then the debates between the presidentiaL nominees will start, which are sure to fire up the electorate!
