Quoting the World Book Encyclopedia, Madison is "often called the Father of the Constitution" because he "played a leading role in the Constitutional Convention of 1787, where he helped design the checks and balances that operate among Congress, the president, and the Supreme Court. He also helped create the U.S. federal system, which divides power between the central government and the states."
