Beginning in 1935, the Supreme Court's conservative majority left much of FDR's agenda in ruins. The pillars of the New Deal fell in short succession. It was not just the New Deal but democracy itself that stood on trial. In February 1937, Roosevelt struck back with an audacious plan to expand the Court to fifteen justices--and to "pack" the new seats with liberals who shared his belief in a "living" Constitution.

I knew that Roosevelt had tried to pack the Supreme Court but did not know the politics behind it. Some of the same types of political action groups and their rhetoric from 1937 repeat themselves today in our current campaigns and politics.
