Not a Good Framework for Government?

Several days ago Justice Ginsburg travelled to Egypt, where she recommended they not use the US Constitution as a foundation for modern law

Why would a justice of the US Supreme Court say such a thing to Egyptians, who will possibly be governed by the Muslim Brotherhood?

Because the original drafting of the US Constitution doesn't pass Ginsburg's liberal sniff-test, due to the "...original exclusion of women, slaves and Native Americans."

Her comments don't surprise me.  I've encountered this attitude in my personal dealings with liberals.  Anything that doesn't measure-up to their secular-progressive sensibilities is to be completely discarded.  To liberals, "dead white guys" have nothing to offer today's chic, 21st Century society.
