Dear 100 Hour Board,

President Bush has talked about amending the Constitution to define marriage as the union between a man and a woman. Props to him. But does he actually have plans to pursue this proposal, and what do you think the probable outcome would be?

A: Dear e,
President Bush doesn't have any real plans to amend the constitution, especially not in an election year. The amendment process is sufficiently difficult that the topic of marriage will probably not warrant a genuine effort to make an amendment, despite the fact that stable families are probably what this country needs most. Besides, it's an election year. He'll be plenty busy beating off Kerry or whoever else wins the bid.
