    Correct Answer
    A. Kennedy
    Explanation
    Kennedy is not considered a liberal justice because during his tenure on the Supreme Court, he often sided with conservative justices on key issues. He was known for being a swing vote, occasionally leaning towards more liberal positions on certain social issues, but overall his voting record aligned more closely with conservative ideologies. This is in contrast to justices like Sotomayor, Kagan, and Breyer, who are generally considered to be more liberal in their judicial philosophy and voting patterns.

Throughout her career, Ginsburg consistently advocated for progressive causes and was a strong advocate for women's rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and voting rights. She often dissented in cases where the conservative justices held the majority opinion, further highlighting her liberal stance. Therefore, Ginsburg stands out from the other options as the only justice who is not considered conservative.

    Kennedy is considered both a conservative and a liberal justice because he has made decisions that align with both conservative and liberal ideologies throughout his tenure on the Supreme Court. He has been known to side with the conservative justices on issues such as gun rights and campaign finance, but has also sided with the liberal justices on issues such as same-sex marriage and abortion rights. This makes him a swing vote on many important cases and contributes to his reputation as a justice who is not strictly aligned with one ideology.
