Does the U.S. Constitution have a Plain Meaning?. Scholars and practitioners engaged in constitutional debate frequently deride their opponents for ignoring the meaning and requirements of the document. The question, though, is whether single, plain, or obvious meanings of constitutional provisions exist.

Join panelists Timothy Cole, Ph.D., University of Washington, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Maine, and Solomon Goldman, JD, George Washington Law School, Adjunct Professor of Political Science at the University of Maine, as they discuss this topic.
