Just a profound effect on international relations and in existential struggle at the heart of how the US is governed.  This hour, we ask who gets to set the rules for the rest of us - from how the intentions of long-dead founding fathers still push and pull us today, to the front lines of a raging musical battle over the soul of hip-hop.
