Professor Discusses Constitutional Implications of 2008 Election
November 3, 2008 — Professor Anil Kalhan discussed whether the U.S. presidency has acquired excessive power during a guest appearance on Comcast Network’s “The American Law Journal,” broadcast on Nov. 3, 2008.
“There is a danger of too much accrual of power,” Kalhan said of the unitary executive theory, which has prevailed during the Bush Administration, allowing the president to sidestep the formal veto process when confronting legislative initiatives he opposes.
Kalhan and fellow guests Stephen Sheller, an attorney and Drexel University trustee, Michael Moreland, assistant professor at Villanova University School of Law and former associate director for domestic policy in the Bush White House and C. Scott Shields, an attorney, debated the changes that could result from this year’s presidential election in a discussion led by host Christopher Naughton.
The program aired at 6:30 p.m. on CN8.
