14. He was one of nine and without a title. Justices die all the time. Most on the bench, because

they don't have the decency to retire when they feel a little wobbly.

Thurgood Marshall and Clinton and Gore AGREED on much. You can't draw a comparison to them. Also, Thurgood Marshall's SON worked in the Clinton White House. He also worked for Al Gore when Al was a Senator, AND he was a campaign manager during at least one of the Clinton-Gore elections. So, you see, it's not just a POTUS and VPOTUS thing--there's a personal relationship that precedes the WH.

Scalia couldn't carry TM's bags. TM's mark on America was positive and game-changing. Scalia's contribution codified graft and "business as usual" in the worst sense of the term into law.

Gore gave a scripture reading at that funeral. http://www.c-span.org/video/?37494-1/justice-thurgood-marshall-memorial-service It was an appropriate one.

There's no "lost opportunity" with Scalia. The maxim applies: If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.
