    Perhaps Senator Obama will be good enough to tell us what that flaw is and how he plans to remedy it.

    Of course the constitution has flaws, that's why there's an amendment process......

    He's says still today. What are the flaws he refers to? Why has he not mentioned this in his campaign?

    The fundamental flaw is that the damn people have control over the government, not the other way around. He promises change- we'll get it!

    It would freakin' help A LOT if this vid actually let us know what the question was he was answering, don't you think?

    How on earth can we evaluate this without knowing what exactly he's talking about?

    Of course that is exactly WHY this vid doesn't give us the whole story, I suspect.

    Taking partial statements out of context proves nothing except that the editor is dishonest.

    Okay that's better.

    Now at least I have some idea of the issue he was referring to.

    Sure the fact that the constitution did NOTHING but reinforce the legality of the redistribution of wealth coming from BLACK SLAVES into the hands of slave owners.

    That consitution WAS deeply and tragically flawed.

    As to the Warren court?

    Well certainly enfranchising Blacks such that they could vote helped, but of course it did NOTHING to help those folks who'd suffered cerntrues of slavery and then another century of Jim Crow laws, did it?

    Who can argue with that accessment of our history?

    Now what could that court have done to truly pay the Blacks back for the sorry history of redistribution of their wealth that had occurred for three hundred years?

    Consitutionally?

    Nothing. They couldn't have done anything about that injustice because to try to repay that debt would have violated the 5th amendment.

    This was the problem and this will continue to be the problem.

    We have what about 25,000,000 Black Americans whose family history was so tragic that the historic injustice still reverberates thoughout this society economically.

    And there is no obvious solution that can rectify that problem or repay for that redistribution of Black wealth that was stolen from them, either.

    of course it has flaws. you act like the constitution is the bible or something. every political system has flaws. and over time some things do change. you can't stay stuck in the past forever.
