A Conversation About the Constitution

By John Byrne

Interesting and fun conversation yesterday afternoon in Chief Judge Altonaga's courtroom.  Judge Altman interviewing Yale Professor Akhil Reed Amar about his book, "The Words That Made US:  America's Constitutional Conversation, 1760-1840."  Takeaways--George Washington, not James Madison, was the true Father of the Constitution, and Professor Amar should get royalty checks for scripting portions of the movie Air Force One and The West Wing.  Chief Judge Altonaga, Judge Altman, and Judge Becerra were all students of Professor Amar at Yale Law School.

I wonder if Stewart Rhodes took Amar's class at YLS.
