Is Amending the Constitution a Waste of Time?
In the last two years, members of Congress have proposed more than a dozen new Constitutional amendments. Bob Dole endorses no fewer than four constitutional amendmentson flag burning, prayer in the schools, a balanced budget, and term limits. President Clinton wants a Constitutional amendment to protect the rights of victims in the criminal justice system. Thursday, Nov. 7, a University of Chicago Constitutional Scholar will argue that trying to amend the Constitution is a futile gesture and that changes are more effectively left to the political process.
