Ginsburg: I’ve got at least another five years in me

She certainly has incentive enough for seven years, if not the five. After attending a play about the late Justice Antonin Scalia in New York, Ruth Bader Ginsburg told the audience that she has no thoughts of retirement. At least publicly, Ginsburg gave no political reason for her determination to continue working, however:
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said she hopes to stay on the Supreme Court until the age of 90.
“I’m now 85,” Ginsburg said on Sunday. “My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years.”
She has already hired law clerks for at least two more terms.
And she very well might go the whole seven years. Ginsburg’s a known fitness buff whose daily regimen would leave some half her age gasping for breath. She infamously fell asleep during a State of the Union speech in 2015, which she blamed on wine at dinner earlier in the evening, but she hasn’t shown many other signs of slowing down. Nor has she expressed any desire for retirement at all, even a little.
