1) Obviously.
2) This has already occurred.
3) Obviously.

Until something major changes -- like amending the Constitution to make 9 or 18 year terms for SCOTUS, or a minimum age of ~70 or so -- SCOTUS is an overtly political institution, and will be treated as such. As long as this is the case, the Democrats should try to make sure they have just as much partisan influence on this political institution as the Republicans, IMO. And this may help push the country to the point that we'll actually come together and amend the Constitution.

The alternative may be that someone starts shooting SCOTUS justices, since that could gain one side a significant advantage. Then we'd be in big, big trouble.
