Some people want to operate. Actually, the political Left has agreed on that for at least a century. The Nation’s Daniel Lazare describes the Constitution as “an anchor [that is] holding American society back.” In his book, The Frozen Republic: How the Constitution is Paralyzing Democracy, Lazare calls for eliminating the Electoral College and the Senate amid other changes.
