If you could propose one constitutional amendment knowing that it would seriously considered and had a good chance of passing, what would it be and why?I'd like to see something to change the malapportionment of the Senate. I'm really not sure exactly what; it's not worth even thinking about since it's so unlikely to happen. You could I suppose have between one and five Senators per state instead of two each; you could have two Senators per state, but have their vote within the chamber proportional to the population of their states. I do like the small Senate...as I said, I'm not really sure how I'd do it, but I'd want to try to alleviate the apportionment problem without destroying what I like about the Senate.
There are a number of relatively minor constitutional amendments I'd go for if I could be king for a day. I'd remove the minimum ages for federal offices. I wouldn't eliminate the electoral college, but I would eliminate electors -- there's absolutely no justification for the possibility of unfaithful electors. Oh, and I'd make the District a state.
