Rewriting The Constitution

[Posted by reader_iam]

Can you name even five, much less 10 or 15, people you admire and trust profoundly enough to write a new constitution for the United States? I sure can't. (For starters, my instinct is to eliminate anyone who'd be willing to do it, or even thinks it's a good, safe idea to toss out the one we have and just start over.)

But I'll maintain an open mind here, for the sake of argument. Anyone want to take a stab at suggesting names for a taskforce up to the job that Ezra Klein thinks needs doing? (Ezra's nominated himself, of course.)
