Supreme Court pre-game

I have a hunch the Democratic strategy will be subsumed by Republican yelling, but here's the Dem strategy, go populist and anti-corporate, hinging on the recent Roberts/Scalia/Alito/Thomas bloc's decisions,
“I don’t think people are going to tell the nominee, ‘It is terrible what the Roberts court has done — what are you going to do to reverse it?’” said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), laying out the argument to POLITICO on Monday.

“But I think what people are going to do is say, ‘Do you share our concern about the fact that the court always seems to side with the big corporate interests against the average American?’” he added. “I think there’s going to be more of the public realizing they really do have a stake in who’s on the Supreme Court.”

It's been a long time since the Dems have called on their "social issues," as Republican attacks over "anti-business" have cowed them.
