Instead I go off on a 3 minute exposition of the question of sovereignty in the Constitution versus the Articles of Confederation (the governing law in the US prior to the Constitution).
Seriously? What sort of nerd knows enough about that to make that the crux of his argument on the revolutionary nature of the Constitution? Perhaps more interesting is the question of why would anyone know that? In any case I've made a Venn diagram describing the class response:
First day of class and I'm already "that guy".
