President Schwarzenegger?

Today's biggest waste of time poll comes from CNN. They asked a nationwide sample about voting for Arnold Schwarzenegger in their state and amending the constitution to allow non-native US citizens to hold the Presidency. The results are as boring as the premise...

Schwarzenegger is running for Governor in California, and is barred from holding the Presidency. How Alabama, for example, voters feel about the Schwarzenegger candidacy is real low on my list of useful information to know. Given that we haven't amended the constitution in my 39 years, asking people how they feel about that topic is sort of pointless too. Congress and state legislatures make that decision, not the electorate directly.

It's CNN, USA TODAY, and Gallup's money, but the whole endeavor seems like a pointless waste of time. Come to think of it the recall election fits that description too.

Actually, there have been amendments within the last 39 years -- one of which was the long overdue 11th (out of 12) provision of the originally proposed Bill of Rights, an amendment to require that if Congress votes a pay raise it can only go into effect for a subsequent Congress. Sadly, Congress got around that be creating the congressional compensation commission, which can act at any time under the authority of its creating legislation, and since that legislation was several Congresses ago the pay raise can go into effect immediately.

That's what we get for letting lawyers into Congress.

Kev, the people ABSOLUTELY have a say in Constitutional Amendments. The state legislatures don't have the nerve to vote without popular consent on issues like the ERA.

If I remember correctly, NJ had the issue on the ballot during November elections. As the people went, so went NJ.
