Was that selfish of her?...
 

my guess is that she didn't know exactly when she was going to die

and that she/her ego probably predisposed her to think she was still the best person qualified for the job at that time

was that selfish of her?

my definition of selfish is acting in one's self interest, which everyone does when given a the choice, no exceptions

so i'd say yeah, she was selfish

but was that a bad thing?

i don't think so

In substance, I generally agree with your statement, ill timed as it is.

Well, RBG didn't know that Trump would be elected. And she also didn't know how long she would live.

I don't think her legacy of working tirelessly for justice will be tainted by her wanting to continue that work for as long as humanly possible.
