7. Analyze James Madison's impact on the Constitutional Convention. -James Madison helped Americans to think of republican government in radical new ways. Those who listened soon recognized his genius for translating theory into practice. Madison did not advocate a modern “interest group” model of political behavior. Madison thought competing factions would neutralize each other, leaving the business of running the central government to the ablest most virtuous persons in the nation. Madison’s federal system was not a small state writ large, it was a government based on the will of the people and yet detached from their narrowly based demands. 8. Identify the three branches of the new federal government created by the Constitution. -Legislative, Judicial and Executive. 9. What was the Great Compromise? -The compromise deciding that each state should have a certain number of representatives based on the state’s population.
