Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg tells the New Yorker's Jeffrey Toobin that she's likely to stay on the court for at least another two years, health permitting.

"It's not this year. You can never tell when you're my age," Ginsburg said. "But, as long as I think I have the candlepower, I will do it. And I figure next year for certain. After that, who knows?"
