Presidential Popular Constitutionalism

I just received a copy of the March issue of the Fordham Law Review.  Probably I was on the mailing list because it includes the proceedings of an interesting ethics symposium and a tribute to my former Dean Mary Daly.  What I ended up reading, though, was an article by Jed Purdy, Presidential Popular Constitutionalism.  It is well worth the time.  Of course the piece raises the following question: if Purdy is right that the constitutionalism of Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush were surprisingly similar in significant ways, how different will President Obama's constitutional vision turn out to be?
