  •  Constitutional admendments are very hard to pass. (0+ / 0-)

    You have to get 2/3 or Congress and 3/4 of states.

    Even common sense ones like abolishing the Electoral college gets whines from small states claiming they'll be left out of campaigning.  (Although it's OK to leave out large states that are true blue or true red from anything more than cash cows for campaign funds.)

    I would at least like to see the house of Representatives increased to 500 seats so larger states don't keep being bled of congressional districts.  That takes a simple majority.  But the Democrats won't push it because they're afraid the Republicans will use it against them, as Tom DeLay did in Texas.
