Sample text

Between the Missouri Crisis and the Nullification Crisis of 1832–1833, the intellectual tenor of southern political thinking moved sharply in a states’ rights direction. To Madison’s intellectual embarrassment, states’ rights advocates took the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions of 1798 as a founding document for their erroneous cause. Madison patiently explained that neither he nor Jefferson ever contemplated anything like the nullificationist language emanating from South Carolina. But increasingly the idea took hold in the South that the states retained some original elements of sovereignty that their ratification of the Constitution had not wholly erased.

The objective was not to separate the powers rigidly, but to prevent dangerous concentrations of authority. Some combinations of power between departments would be permissible, Madison concluded, if they helped to secure the greater goal of maintaining a balanced constitution. Indeed, such combinations were all the more essential once one realized that the dangers to the separation of powers did not arise equally from all three departments. In a republic, he explained in Federalist 48, the greatest threat came from the “impetuous vortex” of the legislature, particularly the lower house, with its close association with the people.

Yet recalling his own historical researches in 1786–1787, he remained sensitive to the needs of history. Madison believed that the records of the Revolutionary era – and especially everything relating to the adoption of the Constitution – would offer lessons that no other nation could match, and from which they could all learn. The best evidence would be the daily notes of debates at the Federal Convention that Madison had assiduously kept, and which he edited first in the early 1790s and again in his retirement.
