In his new book, Prof. William Howell argues that the Constitution is undermining effective government—and offers a way to move forward

"The Founders cannot save us. We must save ourselves."

That’s a bold statement in today's political culture. And it comes from Professor William Howell’s new book (co-authored with Terry Moe of Stanford University), Relic: How Our Constitution Undermines Effective Government—and Why We Need a More Powerful Presidency, out this week.

On the new episode of Radio Harris, Howell sits down to talk about the book, why our worship of the Constitution and the Founding Fathers is paralyzing us, and what we can do about it.
