O'Conner (Update of 4 Jan 2010 post)

"Oh NO!" - your response to early 2000
election returns favoring Gore;
You speak of the responsibility of the Court -
what of the responsibility of your swing vote?

You stood at a Crossroad of History; and
History will Judge you.

You fear that which you already know:
that your entire judicial career
will be evaluated by that
single decision.

For that decision...
your president awarded you the
"Medal of Freedom"

For Betraying the Republic,
the Black Rose awards you the...

"Distinguished Wings of Icarus"
