According to the media, the 2000 election debacle was a once-in-a-lifetime fluke. But, Lazare argues that such events are likely to become the rule rather than the exception. After more than 200 years, Americaís antiquated govít. is in a state of breakdown. A constitutional overhaul is needed to update the machinery in line with the needs of modern democracy. But, such change is  difficult to achieve. As a result, the U.S. has entered the 21st cent. with an 18th-cent. govít. A new arrangement is required, one which abolishes the electoral college, equal representation in the Senate for all states regardless of size, & an all-powerful Supreme Court. Only when these shackles from the past are broken can the Amer. public assert control over their govít.
