Justice O'Connor on The Daily Show

Justice Sandra Day O'Connor was on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart last night and was quite good. She talked a bit about her courts-education program and a bit about the Court and she did a pretty good job riffing with Stewart. The couple times I saw her live (and I never have had the privilege of meeting her) she always seemed a bit self-serious (and at one point she corrected Stewart that they don't have trials, just oral arguments). But she seemed very relaxed in the interview. At one point, when Stewart referred to her as the "swing justice," she stopped him and said she did not like the term; he then referred to her as the "most principled justice" and she said "Much better."
