9. Yeah. The practicalities of overturning CU by amendment are depressing.

Ironically the major hurdle would be oceans of anonymous corporate dollars spent to defeat the effort.

Ideally President Obama would nominate two or three scholars to the bench and CU would be cut out like the cancer it is. Unfortunately, Citizens United is going to be the new Roe-Vs-Wade and any new justice will have to pass the litmus test of leaving CU alone if he/she hopes to have any chance of confirmation.

Maybe the court will do the right thing but I don't think we can count on it. I'm with Bernie Sanders on this and I think we have to start working on an amendment.
