In this season of giving thanks I’d like to express my gratitude to President James Madison, hailed as the “Father of the Constitution.” This founding document outlines our three branches of government, and provides a separation of power among them to prevent an over-concentration of influence by one person or body. As Madison expressed in the Federalist Papers, a foundation text for constitutional interpretation, “Ambition must be made to counteract ambition.” Today, more than ever, this statement rings true!
