his fellow Republicans gave him quite a cold shoulder

Yeah, such a "cold shoulder" that they let him draft the amendment and then pushed the result through the ratification process.

Sorry, but you're still stuck unless you wish to join the Night Of The Living Constitution crowd in repudiating the whole notion of original intent.

As I said, read Berger. I don't have time to copy the entire chapter on a post.

Suffice it to say, Berger shows that Bingham's comments were at best muddled and though he might have made the first draft of the amendment, that language was not what became the final, ratified product.
