The freedom of impending retirement

Chris Dodd (D.Ct.) announces that he will introduce a constitutional amendment to reverse the Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United v. FEC.

I guess the freedom of knowing that you're not going to have to raise campaign funds any more can work wonders.

This is something that Democrats should get behind, strongly. Make the GOPhers stand up for corporate giving! The difference between Republican office-holders and the tea partiers over this could be instructive; it could be a powerful wedge issue for Democrats. Of course, to use it, many Dems would have to get over their addiction to support from corporate interests.
