SUPREME COURT/RUTH BADER GINSBURG: “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg indicated Thursday that she intends to remain on the Supreme Court as long as she can, predicting that the “pendulum” of American politics will eventually swing back toward the center.
‘I will do this job as long as I can do it full steam,’ Ginsburg, 83, said at an appearance Thursday night at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. ‘When I can’t, that will be the time I will step down.’
In an interview on the BBC’s ‘Newsnight’ broadcast, Ginsburg noted that Justice John Paul Stevens was 90 when he retired and said: ‘So I have a way to go.’
The health of Ginsburg, who’s widely considered the most reliable liberal vote on the court, has driven concern among liberals and activists concerned that President Donald Trump could reshape the court for years to come.”
