14. One thing that can't be quickly repaired: the Supreme Court

If RBG or one of the other reasonable justice leave office in the next year, another Kavanaugh will be fast-tracked into the seat. And if Trump wins re-election or the senate remains in Republican hands, the same threat will remain for the next four years.

We need a Dem prez and a Dem senate. We've seen how McConnell can block any replacement justice picked by a Dem prez. We need both.

I'm hoping RBG hangs in there for another year. It seems unrealistic to ask her for five years.
