After the knock-down, drag-out confirmation battle for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh almost tore the nation asunder, the White House and Senate are preparing for another, potentially even more divisive, showdown. Ginsburg was discharged from a NY hospital on Christmas day after having two cancerous growths removed from her left lung. Widely viewed as tenaciously willing to hang on with a Republican in the presidency, Ginsburg's own affirmations suggest she may view competency to conduct the court's business as a matter that rivals the court's ideological makeup in importance. Prior to this week, she had never missed a day of work in her more than 25 years as a Supreme Court justice.

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.

The Trump administration is already searching for someone to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg - and his supporters are jubilant about the possibilities. Ginsburg is recovering at home after surgery to remove cancer.

A source familiar with the conversations confirms to CNN that the White House legal counsel has been in communication with outside allies and conservative groups about next steps if something should happen to Ginsburg.

Ginsburg missed three days of arguments this week, the first time that's happened since she joined the court in 1993.

The White House "is taking the temperature on possible short-list candidates, reaching out to key stakeholders, and just making sure that people are informed on the process", a source told Politico anonymously.

Ginsburg's health troubles have been met by significant concern from liberals, who recognize that if she retires and Trump picks a conservative to replace her, it would mark a significant generational shift to the right for the court.

Conservatives hold a 5-4 majority on the court.

Speaking with CNBC, top doctors who have performed pulmonary lobectomies, the procedure Ginsburg underwent, said that they expect the Supreme Court justice would be back on the bench in less than six weeks, in time for the Court's February sitting.
