It's all Hamilton and Madison's Fault

Read this article from The Atlantic about the structural flaws in the presidency.  The biggest problem appears that the powers of the office are vague because the framers who wrote them could only picture George Washington holding the office.

I don't agree with all of Professor Epp's suggestions but I think that it is important to note that many of our political problems are structural and require fixes that include more than a change of who is in charge.
