(AP)- U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she’ll remain on the court as long as she can work at “full steam.”

The 84-year-old justice briefly addressed her tenure Monday during a Roosevelt University conference that largely focused on personal stories about her family life, early legal career and her status as a cultural icon.

Ginsburg was appointed to the nation’s highest court in 1993 by then-President Bill Clinton.

She didn’t discuss current cases before the court. But she says that the confirmation process for justices has become too partisan, which is “very dangerous” for a judiciary.

Ginsburg says the “partisan spirit” that prevailed in 1980s and 1990s that saw votes with large margins has failed. She hopes that she’ll see Congress stop the “nonsense” in her lifetime.
