Is Justice Ginsberg holding off on retirement until she knows Warren's plans?

We here know that probably our best shot at getting a true progressive in the White House probably rests with Elizabeth Warren, as recent Quinnipiac polls showed her in the top 3 with Clinton and Christie which should provide a good indicator that she could make a good run of it and give us hope.

I wonder if Ginsberg observes this, and realizes that she's the strong liberal voice on this court or the time being and is needed now and until the end of Obama's term to keep it from going further to the right. Obama won't nominate a Scalia, but he likely won't nominate anyone equal or to the left of Ginsberg either.

If it looks like Warren could make a strong run or the presidency by announcing soon and getting a good campaign going, I think she holds out or the prospect of Warren winning and giving a Warren a good start for her presidency by retiring shortly after Warren wins and giving her the opportunity to get a real decent justice right at the start of her administration.

If it looks like Warren doesn't run for 2016, and we have no strong progressive running in the primaries, I wonder if Ginsberg rethinks her strategy and retires shortly after 2014 election, depending on the makeup of the Senate then.
