El-Haj on Kang on El-Haj on Responsive Party Government

Tabatha Abu el-Haj in the Columbia Law Review Online:

Despite finding my diagnosis of the ills of contemporary American parties and my indictment of responsible party government and its hold over First Amendment doctrine “almost undeniable,” Professor Kang raises two fundamental worries about the associa­tional path to party reform in his response to my essay, Networking the Party: First Amendment Rights and the Pursuit of Responsive Party GovernmentIn essence, he challenges me to explain why the associational path is not only theoretically optimal but also practically possible, and I take up that challenge in the friendly spirit in which it has been offered in my reply, The Possibilities for Responsive Party Government.
