The senator, who is trying to revive his struggling White House campaign, told a crowd in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, that he plans to appoint constructionist judges to the Supreme Court who “respect the Constitution and understand the security of private property it provides.”The campaign is long enough that McCain probably doesn't need to 'swing for the fences' to win back conservative support. If that's right, this probably counts as... a bunt single. Pretty small, but it can't hurt.
"If need be, I would seek to amend the Constitution to protect private property rights in America," he added.
McCain was referring to the 2005 Supreme Court “eminent domain” decision, which he blasted as “disastrous.” The ruling gave local governments the right to take the house of a homeowner and use it for economic development.
In reality, his campaign will probably depend on other things for its revival.
