She can do a lot. She can and will appoint new justices who are true believers in the “living Constitution.” Those are the sorts of justices that will conjure up new rights not spelled out in the Constitution and ignore rights that were clearly written there by the founders and the people who originally ratified it. She and they can violate their oath to uphold and protect the Constitution, under the guise that it’s a “living” document, and they will surely do that.
How would you like to play poker if the rules were “living?” All “living” means is that the rules are not fixed and can be changed willy nilly by he who holds sufficient power to do so. It’s a bit like flipping a coin when it’s, “Heads I win and tails you lose.”
Sher says she will offer amendments to fix things she thinks are wrong. She hates the Citizens United case that says citizens don’t lose their right to free speech just because they carry on their affairs in the form of a corporation. So she’ll want to make changes to the first amendment putting an end to certain people’s participation in the political process. She hates guns so she also hates the second amendment and especially Heller v. DC which held that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms. So, “right after inauguration day” she says she’ll offer Constitutional amendments to “fix” free speech and law-abiding citizens possessing firearms.
Criminals will keep theirs.
Amending the Constitution the legitimate way does not involve the President of the United States at all. It is done by the Congress first offering an amendment by a 2/3 vote in both houses. Then it must be ratified by 3/4 of the states. That’s too hard to do, so the amendments she’s talking about will done by the liberal justices she appoints, by judicial fiat. No need for the people to have a say in any of it. No need for Congress to have a say in any of it either. Hillary’s version of “Wham bam thank you ma’am.”
