    they could use the reading of the Constitution ploy to their advantage to point out all errors in the GOP/tea party interpretations of that document.

      The congressman on "Last Word" said they were going to omit the portions of the Constitution that have changed due to amendments.

      The Democrats should read the omitted portions. I think that would show that the Constitution is a living document.

        Because then they don't have to read the part about slavery. That's the ONLY reason.

        Wouldn't be prudent to have some southern accent reading the part of the Constitution that says slaves are OK, that they're only worth 3/5 of a 'real' person, etc.

        That's why. That's the ONLY reason why.
