American Constitutional History: The SGs Speak

A video of Walter Dellinger (right) and Paul Clement at a Constitution Day event, held at the Madison Building of the Library of Congress and sponsored by Consource is here. As the web partner explains:
Walter Dellinger, former acting Solicitor General of the United States, shares remarks entitled "September 17, 1787: The Debate Begins," addressing the ratification debates and the enduring significance of the Constitution today -- despite the ongoing debates about the meaning of particular phrases.

Paul Clement, former Solicitor General of the United States, then provides a response, followed by a question and answer period for those in the audience (both in person and online).
The American Constitution Society's report of the event (and the source for the above image) is here.
