Ruth Bader Ginsburg optimistic 'over the long haul' for US

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg reportedly said at a Saturday evening play that she is optimistic about the United States "over the long haul."

"My hope is in my lifetime we will get back to the way it was," Ginsburg said about the partisan divide in Washington, D.C., The Wall Street Journal reported.

The justice was attending a play about conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died last year. 

Ginsburg and Scalia were known for their close relationship, despite polarizing political views and differing interpretations of the law.
