Sandra Day O'Connor
My true friends have always given me that supreme proof of devotion, a spontaneous aversion for the man I loved.

In the 2000 presidential election, Al Gore got more votes than George W. Bush, but still lost the election.

Perhaps the most striking assault on the foundations of traditional liberties is a little-known case brought to the Supreme Court by the Obama administration, Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project.
