Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has a message she'd like to make loud and clear to anyone wondering if she plans on stepping down any time soon: In a word, the answer is no.

"Anybody who thinks that if I step down, Obama could appoint someone like me, they’re misguided," Justice Ginsburg said.
