1. Why 2 when 4 would give us the majority?

8. 13 is a number that is avoided. The expansion would either be to 11 or 15. nt

4. SCOTUS

We would not need to negotiate with the republicans if we win the Senate and the WH. We change the Senate rules with a simple majority and place as many justices as we want.

6. But not until after the election.

Dems will be extremely pissed and motivated already to go out and vote, but let's not give the Republicans a reason to drag more of their asses out to the polls.

9. we should do it if it happens and we win

but we threatened a highly liberal replacement for Garland, and it even looked likely at the time that Hillary would win, they still went for it, and they still will go for it now.

10. I don't know who it was but some knowledgeable lawyer suggested

a few months ago that they should nominate a new SC panel of 19 judges including 10 new ones, and cases would be decided by a random panel of 3.
