That's a nice thought, but...

Last week, in a speech at Georgetown University, former Associate Justice Sandra Day O'Connor cautioned students against condoning "those who would strong-arm the judiciary," warning that such tactics would cause the United States to "[fall] into a dictatorship."

That's great, Justice O'Connor, but it would be nice if you actually practiced what you preached. By declaring your intention to only retire under a Republican administration, and saying "that's terrible" of the early call of Florida for Gore in the 2000 election, and not subsequently recusing yourself from Bush v. Gore, you personally handed the reins of power over to those who would do just that - turn this once-great country into a dictatorship.
