The Trump administration is already searching for someone to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg - and his supporters are jubilant about the possibilities. "Her recovery from surgery is on track", Supreme Court public information officer Kathy Arberg said in a statement. "Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required", the Court released Friday afternoon. Doctors who have performed the type of surgery Ginsburg underwent said they are confident that she will recover and return to the High Court by February.

"I wouldn't say she's exactly on my side, but I wish her well I hope she gets better and I hope she serves on the Supreme Court for many years", Trump added.

Speculation about her future took on renewed fervor this week after she missed oral arguments for the first time in 25 years. It's not clear whether she will be able to participate next Monday, when another round of oral arguments is set to begin. The cancer was discovered after she was hospitalized for a fall in November that left her with three broken ribs. Her husband, Martin Ginsburg, died in 2010 due to complications of metastatic cancer.

"I said I will do this job as long as I can do it full steam", Ginsburg said last month during an interview following a New York City screening of "On the Basis of Sex", a feature film about her years as a young lawyer. The Supreme Court said at the time she underwent a "pulmonary lobectomy" resulting in the removal of two malignant nodules. She was released from the hospital on December 25. 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.

She has become best known for her opinions related to civil rights issues, including the landmark case opening up the Virginia Military Institute to women.

Politico reported that the White House stirrings came in response to Ginsburg being out of the office.

Speaking to Politico, conservative legal scholar and director of the Heritage Foundation's Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies John Malcolm said that if Trump was able to pick a third Supreme Court justice, "it would be a brutal confirmation".

The source described the conversations as very preliminary so the White House is not "unprepared" for a grueling hearing.
