James Madison is commonly referred to as the Father of the Constitution in large measure because, in the secrecy of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787, he kept the most complete set of notes.

He also had a very keen mind and a modest demeanor and an uncanny ability to solidify consensus around basic principles that are woven into the Constitution.

The president of the United States was not always called “Mr. President”.

Washington wanted citizens to call him “His Mightiness, the President,” but to many people, that sounded too much like addressing the king they’d fought so hard to shed.
