Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren on the far, far left, against the rest of the field on the merely far left: How can the Democratic Party ever pull together to defeat President Trump when they can’t even agree on their ideology?

Democrat Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has a plan to make the Supreme Court less political by increasing the number of judges — a plan to pack the court.

Will either of these plans depoliticize the highest court, or simply lock in Progressive dominance of the judicial branch?
Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a leading Democratic candidate for president and professing Christian, usually declares: “God has no political party.” Yet recently he told NBC News that God’s political preference would NOT be the Republican Party in the Trump era.
