Bradley Prize ceremony live simulcast tonight

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation announced yesterday that the eleventh annual awards gala ceremony will be, for the first time, streamed online at tonight, Wednesday, June 18, 2014, beginning at 7:30 p.m. EDT.  The public can also participate via Twitter by using the handle @bradleyprizes.

I am deeply honored to be a recipient of the prize along with Goldwater Institute President Darcy Olsen, Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley A. Strassel, and Wall Street Journal drama critic and Commentary Critic-at-Large Terry Teachout.

Video tributes to each Bradley Prize recipient will be shown and nationally syndicated columnist George F. Will will serve as Master of Ceremonies. Entertainment will be provided by the American Military Spouses Choir.

Each Bradley Prize recipient will deliver remarks of 8-10 minutes, and I will be the final speaker.  In my talk, I will identify two competing conceptions of the U.S. Constitution: “The Democratic Constitution” and “The Republican Constitution.” By this, I am not referring to the political parties, but instead to two perennial conflicting visions of constitutionalism.
