Justice Anthony Kennedy -- who turns 74 at the end of the month -- is yapping to family and friends that he's not leaving the Supreme Court before Obama potentially leaves the White House. He said he will stay on until at least the end of the president's first term, according to a Tuesday report from the New York Daily News.
There's buzz surrounding a Kennedy retirement because he often was thought to be the court's swing vote (but recently he has become more reliably conservative), though he's not actually the oldest justice. Here's where he ranks in age among the eldest Supremes:
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Justice Antonin Scalia
Justice Anthony Kennedy
Justice Stephen Breyer
