Biden on the Constitution   Futility Folder:Politics

“The Constitution says that the American people – I taught constitutional law for over 20 years – says the American people get an opportunity to choose who they want on the Supreme Court by who they pick as their senator and their president," said Biden, who began teaching classes at Widener University Delaware Law School in 1991.

The Constitution, which discusses the Supreme Court in Article III, says nothing about the people getting to choose who sits on it. Originally, it did not even say that the public could choose their senators – state legislatures selected them until the 17th Amendment put that power in the hands of the people in 1913.

Well, if that is the case, we have already picked our presidents and senators. So let's get this done.

If Biden wins and wants to pack the court, it's not his idea, but come from the rest of the DEM leaders. 
 
I would think that an effort to pack the SC would end up with a ruling from the SC, about if it's legal to do so, change the Constitution or whatever.
