With this I must disagree....your argument for nullification included examples of how the STATES accomplished nullification.  While true that the repeal of the 17th amendment via Article V is not the be all, end all, only a beginning, it IS that, a beginning.  Accomplishing the repeal of the 17th amendment via the state legislatures, in my humble opinion, would give momentum for other changes, like the elimination of the Department of Education, and possibly the consolidation or elimination of others, in its wake.  Like rats jumping ship, once the momentum swings toward the states, Senators will follow the life rafts.
