political jujitsu rather than the way a strong nation should govern itself. A frank
acknowledgment of the power of the living Constitution has its appeal. After all,

This book is designed as a companion volume to a longer work on constitutional
interpretation, Living Originalism, that should appear in print shortly after this one.
