Do any national US politicians exist who are pro-choice, but oppose Roe v. Wade on constitutional grounds or vise versa?

Roe v. Wade is one of the Supreme Court's more controversial decisions due to the controversial nature of abortion and the creative interpretation of the Constitution to block most regulations of abortion by the states through 'penumbras' of the indirectly stated right to privacy1.

Are there any (or many) current or former prominent US officeholders who have conflicting views on these two parts of the case? For example, a pro-life politician who thinks the Constitution as written protects abortion and would have to be amended; or a politician who thinks abortion needs to be protected, but that Roe v. Wade distorts the Constitution and sets bad precedent for future abuse.

1although Griswold v. Connecticut is probably more to blame for introducing this line of reasoning.
