constitutional uses and abuses

The July edition of is a special issue on the constitution which includes a section on Uses and Abuses of the Constitution:
This roundtable discussion is intended to help us all reckon with our rhetoric and remedy our indifference. In eight paired essays, historians, political scientists, journalists, and lawyers examine the uses and abuses of the Constitution in contemporary American political affairs, from Bush v. Gore to the The Clinton Impeachment.
The remainder of the articles in the July edition are also worth a good gander, such as the one entitled The Common School about high schoolers debating the meaning of the constitution, and the We The People competition.
