Obama Suggested He Might Try to Amend Constitution

The Hill reports President Obama told Democratic donors he might be "in a very strong position" to demand a Constitutional amendment on campaign finance reform during his second term, according to Ken Vogel's new book.

Said Obama: "Now, I taught constitutional law. I don't tinker with the Constitution lightly. But I think this is important enough that citizens have to get mobilized around this issue, and this will probably be a multiyear effort. After my reelection, my sense is that I may be in a very strong position to do it."
