    The oldest conservative is Thomas at 70

    Trump may get another nomination in his first term, two or three more in a second term

    The two aging liberals will hold on as long as possible, but at their age nothing is guaranteed

    Furthermore, conservatives like Thomas might retire during Trump's second term just to give him another nomination and to make sure the seat doesn't swing. That's the reason I think Kennedy resigned when he did, just in case the democrats take the Senate (which is not happening, but there has been larger upsets)

    I'm being serious.

    If he goes 2 terms no way Ruth goes the distance.

    Clarence Thomas is right around that magical retirement/death age as well....Would hate to see him go tho, he would be hard to replace for our people and the constitution!

    64 years old with diabetes. If she were to push to the end of Trumps term she’ll be 70. Her major organs are being affected despite managing it. She was treated by EMTs last January for low blood sugar and she recently suffered a shoulder injury. All adds stress to her aging diabetic body. She can last but I suspect we haven’t heard the last of her health issues which are destined to get worse between now and age 70. I think there is a fair chance she steps down before then.

    We've gotta get them first. That old witch could last another 15 years.

    We need Breyer (a Bush appointee) to quit.
