  1. Bloodshy says:

    David: What’s your view on this issue? Should this be a state decision or is it a Constitutional issue?

    I tilt toward states making their own decisions, but I’m not entirely certain.

    I don’t like Bachmann’s response. I don’t see how one could be for a Constitutional Amendment, but be unwilling to override state law. A Constitutional Amendment will necessarily override state law. I don’t see how you can have it both ways.
