Two Questions for Obama's SCOTUS Pick

What are the unamendable portions of the Constitution? Why did the Framers make them unamendable?  Answer to the first--see Article V, last two clauses. 

Hint:  In other words, why is federalism a central American political principle (and what is its relationship to majoritarianism) and was the founding racist?  I doubt that any senator of either party has any interest in posing the questions, but I have to have hope.

For the other questions I would have had them ask of nominee Sotomayor, see here.

I hope they also bring up Kelo and the nature and purpose of eminent domain.
