Miller makes it perfectly clear that the Federalists were maladroit politicians who failed to recognize the democratic roots of American society. One learns why the Federalists felt that the American experiment in free government had failed when Jefferson was elected, but, despite their shortsightedness, they had taken a parchment and turned it into an effective instrument of government.
