…that the Democratic Party was on a path to totally acquiesce to Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, especially after Roberts steered to the middle (June Medical, DACA…). And in all likelihood, Barrett wasn’t enough to tip the Dems to act. Biden and Harris punted it like it was 4th and 40. But the last week of the election, Barrett made herself into a Trump campaign Il Duce balcony photo op (after a first one was a superspreader disaster), showed she would recuse from election cases, for which Trump bragged he has appointed her as (his own) 5th vote. And then Gorsuch and Kavanaugh and a bunch of lower court judges jumped the shark in utterly brazen, sloppy, and unstrategic decisions and botched the long-game and seem to have provoked many moderate, incrementalist cautious Democrats like me to embrace sweeping judicial reform.
