11. As it stands, now, a president is either indictable or not indictable, under current law.

Trying to make a law that the president is indictable cedes the conclusion that, right now, the president is not indictable. The tack to take would be to sue that the "cannot indict a sitting president" policy is unconstitutional.

It is not a case of worrying about how they paint it, but how we will have painted it.

You can't do the "two things at a time" because one is a fall back solution in the case that the president is, indeed, not indictable. That argument is premature and undermines the argument that the president is, currently, indictable.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
