but the point is you have to want to in the first place. IF we did have the votes many if not most liberals still wouldn't approve of the tactic. In my view it's a basically conservative, even reactionary impulse. They think they're protecting some kind of hallowed institution or something, but it's just a "West Wing" fantasy, and it only serves to act as a bulwark against democratic pressure. And now they find themselves in an almost laughable paradox, because the whole purpose of preserving the pristine SCOTUS was to avoid Republicans taking control and doing something like overturning Roe. Yeah... it'd be a real shame if that happened, huh?

Agreed, I do think that one great irony of the Democratic party is they are usually pretty poor in doing much when they have power that is that lasting. Republicans at minimum take actions to ensure that they keep power and hold onto it while rewarding the most powerful in the process.
Often at the expense of most voters. Dems are hardly better, but they have been out of power in many states for most practical senses for a while and it seems to be that they are not often in control of the federal government in a real way. And when they are they accomplish the bare minimum if much at all to actually improve things. At best they are a stop gap to the tides of even worse.
