Yes, but this has spectacularly failed. The SCOTUS is a political institution, whether we like it or not. I hope that this could be changed, but it would require a Constitutional amendment. Asking the Democrats to pretend that it's not a political institution just helps the Republicans, and I'm not particularly eager to do that.
