Ruth Bader Ginsberg Says No Plans to Resign From SCOTUS During Obama's Term

Here's a bit of good news - Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg has let in be known that she will not be resigning during Obama's term.

There's been a great deal of speculation that Ginsberg, 78 would step down and allow the president to put another ├╝berLefty Justice on the Court during an election year, but apparently Justice Ginsberg, who's been on the Court for 18 years isn't going anywhere just yet.

While another far Left Obama nominee wouldn't change the balance of the Court since Justice Ginsberg is reliably Left leaning, both of President Obama's appointments have not only been even further off the spectrum than even the current Left-leaning Justices but fairly young, assuring that they're unfortunately going to be around for awhile. On the other hand, if Justice Ginsberg hangs on until 2013 and the president is defeated for re-election, the new president could very well have at least two Supreme Court justices to replace..and both of them are part of the current block of four Left leaning justices.
