2002 Honda Civic mileage: 69,000. The ignition switch wire heats up when I start the engine. I think it generates from the ignition switch. It gets so hot that you can't touch the end of the wire that is soldered to the ignition switch. Could this mean that the ignition switch is bad, or that there is a short in the line, or something else?

Usually the switch will heat up is because of a bad connection inside that causes resistance. Replacing the ignition switch should fix your problem.
