Professor Pitkannan conducts a Harvard class discussion centered around the novelty of the United States Constitution and how it prevents the president from effectively being an elected king. Simon, a homeless man and guest, argues that the genius of the Constitution is that it allows for ordinary people to govern themselves and that it is flexible enough to be modified with the evolution of society. He then states that the president is considered a servant of the people by the Constitution.
