Democrat Presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris have purposely avoided answering whether or not they’d pack the Supreme Court if they won the election.

In Wednesday night’s Vice Presidential debate, current Vice President Mike Pence pressed Harris on the issue, which she again dodged.

Thursday, reporters asked Biden, yet again, wether he would pack the courts, to which Biden responded that voters “will know my opinion on court packing when the election’s over.”

“You’ll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over. I know this is a great question and I don’t blame y’all for asking, but you know the moment I answer that question the headline in every one of your papers will be about that other than focusing on what’s happening now. The election has begun. There’s never been a court appointment once the election has begun. 4 million or so people have already voted. They’re denying the American people the one shot they have under Constitutional Law to be able to have their input.”

Not that it changes any minds on the left, necessarily, but this is awfully reminiscent of Speaker Pelosi’s now infamous line in justification of ramming through Obamacare — “we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it.” Hard to see how that plays well with anyone in the middle, especially when it comes to one of our three branches of government.

So I guess this makes, 11, huh?

And this ad put out by the Trump campaign, highlighting former Democrat presidential contenders and their thoughts on packing the supreme court is about as good as it gets:

This needs to happen:

Last I checked, the entire purpose of a campaign was to give voters a chance to scope out what each candidate would do, should they win the public trust. But it’s not like we have a press corps willing to push this issue any further or explore why an overhaul of an entire branch of government and a refusal of a PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE to answer a question about the overhaul of an entire branch of government might be a tad worrisome.
