Larry Sabato, Election Analyst and Author; University of Virginia's Professor of Politics; Founder and Head of the U.Va. Center for Politics
Larry Sabato’s book A More Perfect Constitution is a call for a new American Constitutional Convention, with 23 specific, major changes proposed. Sabato will ask you to set aside your own political loyalties, to look past the current ‘values’ debates and hot-button issues, to consider this very real possibility: that the failure of the nation to update the Constitution and the structure of government it originally bequeathed to us is at the root of our current political dysfunction.
