Mistakes an error in action, calculation, opinion, or judgment caused by poor reasoning, carelessness, insufficient knowledge, etc.
Unfortunately the constitution along with all of American history has been marred with mistakes. However, in my opinion the greatest part of our government in the ability to correct our mistakes.

We know now that slavery, the three fifths compromise, and ignoring the rights of woman were horrid mistakes. However the traditions of the time caused many of these mistakes. After all traditions cause many of our mistakes. This quote by Charles Caleb Colton perfectly summarizes mistakes as well as the constitution it's self.
" It is not so difficult a task to plant new truths, as to root out old errors; for there is this paradox in men, they run after that which is new, but are prejudiced in favor of that which is old."

Comments anyone?
