The Silver Lining

There is a very big silver lining from this election. It occurred in Michigan:

Proposed amendment to Michigan Constitution would "prohibit the University of Michigan and other state universities, the state, and all other state entities from discriminating against or granting preferential treatment based on race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin." On June 23, 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5-4 decision in Grutter v. Bollinger, ruled in favor of affirmative action in the University of Michigan's admissions policies. The Bush administration opposed the university's pro-affirmative action admission policies.

Here is a link to the text.

The measure passed 59-41 in a BLUE state.

This Amendment could be a huge victory for conservatism. Look for it to start appearing in other states.
