Should We Preserve, Or Ditch, The Constitution?

Oh, how I love C-SPAN!  It covered, and has made available for viewing on its website, a thought-provoking panel discussion at Princeton University earlier this month.  The topic: Is The American Constitution Worth Preserving?  Did the Founding Fathers bequeath us a timeless document, capable of addressing all problems for all ages, or is the Constitution an archaic, inefficient instrument in dire need of revision? 

The panelists offered a diversity of views on the question.  Some argued in favor of chucking the Constitution entirely, others argued for a new constitutional convention, and yet others expressed great support for the document as-is.  If you have some spare time (2 hr. and 14 min. to be exact), check it out.
