    But you still are a private school, so the constitution does not apply . . .

    Constitutional Commentary ran a piece (presumably by Dan Farber) almost 15 years ago making this exact argument. See But Cf., Was George Washington Constitutional? 12 Const. Comment. 137 (1995).

    Haha, well, on no more than one second of thought, I think the, ahem, more fundamental language in the constitution (“The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.”) trumps. :-)

    People – get real! There is two warr going on, a bad economy, presidential race, poverty all around the globe, food crisis around the worl, aids epedimic, and many other things that are effecting us all – and you bring this up as a issue? This happened over 200 years ago – there was a reason behind selecting George Washington as President. I would recommend reading your history first before you make a case, i.e. gather the facts before presenting your case. Congress authorized the selection of George Washington as President based on many honorable and noble qualities that he possesed. So – how about you research something like: “How to save the planet from total destruction!”
