Ginsburg Undergoes Surgery

Supreme Court Justince Ruth Ginsburg underwent surgery Thursday for pancreatic cancer, the Star Tribune reported.
The Star Tribune reports this raises the possibility that the court's only woman may have to step down before she had planned.
While pancreatic cancer is often deadly, doctors said they caught Ginsburg's at an early state, said the Star Tribune.
The Start Tribune said that in 1999, Ginsburg had surgery for colon cancer and had radiation and chemotherapy, but never missed a day at work.
The Star Tribune reported President Barack Obama wished her a speedy recovery, but also reported if she were to step down, it would be up to him to appoint a new judge.
The Washington Post reported Ginsburg will remain in the hospital for the next week to 10 days. The Post also reports that Gisburg is a "reliabe liberal vote" on the court, but she has many friendships with her more conservative colleagues.
