I haven't heard Democrats calling for constitutional amendments
Reader comment on: Barone's Predictions

If Democrats think the constitution is so flawed, why aren't they crying to amend it like the Tea Partiers. It is hard to keep up with the many ways the Tea Partiers would like to change the constitution. A Balanced budget amendment. A Defense of Marriage amendment. Repealing the direct election of Senators. Eliminating the Separation of Church and State. Repealing birthright citizenship. These are far more serious than the couple of offhanded remarks you quote in this post. If someone wants to take the position that the founding fathers were omniscient and infallible (let's forget the whole slavery thing!), then why spend so much time questioning what they did or did not put in the constitution and trying to change it.
