General points- continued:

Constitution is a living document => interpretation

Lays out government’s basic structure

Role of key political institutions

Constitution is a political document=> not perfect

Represents political compromises made at the time

Written in a way to gain ratification of most at least 9 of 13 Colonies

Result: difficult issues side stepped or made their wording made ambiguous

Inherent Presidential Powers left to first occupant’s discretion while on the job

Slavery & women’s rights left to future generations
