Short biography
The historian Garry Wills, one of President Madison's biographers, says, "Madison's claim on our admiration does not rest on a perfect consistency, any more than it rests on his presidency. He has other virtues. . . As a framer and defender of the Constitution he had no peer. . . The finest part of Madison's performance as president was his concern for the preserving of the Constitution. . . No man could do everything for the country – not even Washington. Madison did more than most, and did some things better than any. That was quite enough."
