Not very realistic, if you examine, oh, the last forty of Kennedy’s decisions. He just liked being the most powerful guy in DC when it mattered. Even the moaners and people who lick his boots admit his last important decision where he sided with the left side of the court was in 2008 – detainees at Guantanamo Bay. Prior to that, it was banning the death penalty for juveniles in 2005.
Seriously? Neither of those are exactly major impacts on the USA. One that DID was Citizens United, and Kennedy ran to the right to give Republicans the advantage and turn the country over to the wealthy corporate a******s as fast as he could.
Democrats have to start playing hardball. They’ve given up the country piecemeal for 30 years now, mumbling about “demographics”, well, it’s PAST TIME to show a pair.
