Audio: Continued expansion of presidential power topic of Constitution Day program

Vanderbilt University Professor of Political Science Bruce Science spoke about the continued increase in presidential power at the expense of Congress during the university’s annual Constitution Day program on Sept. 23. Oppenheimer argued that the so-called pendulem in the U.S. Constitution that prevents one of the three branches of government from obtaining too much power has not been working as intended in recent decades. The event took place in Flynn Auditorium of Vanderbilt Law School.
