  1. Sorry, but NYC is a bit out of the way.

    How about tell us what your answer is?

    But of course constitutions are political compromises and not the product of a "design team" The (in)effectiveness of a constitution depends less on what it says than on the existence of political institutions/players willing to enforce it.

  3. 'But of course constitutions are political compromises and not the product of a "design team"'

    This is one of my (Oakeshott's) opints -- people think they are designing a constitution, but they are really just cobbling one together from bitsand pieces of traditions, customs, precepts, ideologies, etc.
