Ginsburg, 85, who missed oral arguments this week, has not been on the bench since her surgery last month, but she has participated by reading briefs at home.

At the same time, the Republican leaders must tread carefully while Ginsburg is still recovering from her recent cancer surgery in order to avoid sparking the righteous indignation of well-organized and well-funded liberal radicals, who spent weeks protesting in and around Capitol Hill last fall. "Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required", Arberg added.

A survivor of two prior cancer surgeries, in 1999 and 2009, Ginsburg had made it a point of pride that she missed no oral arguments during those episodes.

Along with outside conservative groups girding for war, the White House is reportedly working with new Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on a short list of nominees who could survive the confirmation problems - particularly in light of the tumultuous Brett Kavanaugh hearing fights.

Ginsburg has said she will continue to serve on the Supreme Court as long as she is able to do the job.

Justice Ginsburg is now a three-time cancer survivor, and according to the American Lung Association, most patients are back to their usual lifestyles within a month after a lobectomy.

This week, for the first time since she joined the court in 1993, she missed a round of oral arguments.

She's recovering from major surgery and can probably still outlift you, bro.

The nodules were found after Ginsburg fell, breaking three ribs, in November. "They're doing it very quietly, of course, because the idea is not to be opportunistic, but just to be prepared so we aren't caught flat-footed."... After all, it's unlike Justice Ginsburg, but there's precedent for this sort of thing. If her absence continues, however, then people will begin to speculate if something more serious is happening with the justice.

Many liberal activists and social media users are desperately hoping Ginsburg can outlast President Donald Trump's administration and wait until a Democrat enters the White House again before she retires.

A year ago, the news broke that Ginsburg hired law clerks for at least two court terms, signaling she intends to stay through 2020.
