Outside the Box: Why a new U.S. Constitution may be the only way to fix the divided state of the union

If you were writing a Constitution for the United States from scratch today, how many provisions from our national charter would you keep?

Would you assign each state equal voting rights in the U.S. Senate, ensuring that less-populated states like Wyoming and Vermont, with populations under 1 million, get as many senators as large states like California, with a population approaching 40 million, or Texas, with almost 30 million residents? Would you include an electoral college that allows presidents to win the national election while losing the popular vote? Would you sign on to the current system for naming new justices to the Supreme Court, which has created a deeply politicized nomination process that can be exploited to deny presidents the opportunity to fill open seats on the Court?
