The problem here is that Ginsburg is very intelligent, very honest and a very good lawyer. She's wrong on everything but she's not stupid, deceptive, or a poor jurist. Her arguments are logical but wrong and her intentions have always been leftist in nature. Something that everyone knew when she came up for confirmation.
The Senate at the time of her confirmation was controlled by Republicans and Orrin Hatch, they knew she was a deep-seeded liberal but one of the privileges of winning the presidency is the nomination of whoever you want. Which is why conservatives were so upset about the treatment of Thomas and later Alito.
I guess what I'm trying to say is:
1) Almost everyone agrees that Ginsburg was a qualified jurist on the left and the right
2) Rudy never said that Ginsburg was "setting the right course for America" only that she was intelligent and honest
Rudy keeps saying he is a "strict constructionist" but in 2005 on the Sean Hannity show he said that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is "very intelligent, very honest, very good lawyer".
So Rudy likes BOTH Ruth Bader Ginsburg and John Roberts? How can a sane person like both lawyers?
Sure it makes it more interesting to have smart people from both sides on the Supreme Court, but the Supreme Court's job isn't to entertain us, its job is to be right, and set the right course for America.
You can't think John Roberts and Ruth Bader Ginsburg are both setting the right course for America. It's like having two steering wheels in a car. One car is trying to go to Iowa, and one is trying to go to New York. It doesn't work.
"she is unique as a Supreme Court justice, having spent the majority of her career as an advocate for specific causes, as a lawyer for the National Organization for Women (NOW) and an in-house counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)"
Ginsburg is considered to be part of the " liberal wing" in the current court and has a Segal-Cover score of 0.680 placing her as the most liberal (by that measure, which takes no account of judicial actions post-confirmation) of current justices, although more moderate than those of many other post- War justices. In a 2003 statistical analysis of Supreme Court voting patterns, Ginsburg emerged the second most liberal member of the Court (behind Justice Stevens).  
A number of Senators on the committee came away frustrated, with unanswered questions about how Ginsburg planned to make the transition from an advocate for causes she personally held dear, to a Justice on the highest court in America.
What do you think? If you were a Republican presidential candidate would you say she is "very intelligent, very honest, very good lawyer" like Rudy? Do you trust Rudy on Judges? I do not trust his view on the definition of Strict Constructionist, because he calls himself a strict constructionist, but his willingness to use the courts to get what he wants would indicate otherwise. Perhaps his priase for Ruth should consern us also... perhaps not...
What do you think?
