Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

Former President George W. Bush offered his endorsement of presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Tuesday, though his backing likely did not come as a surprise to most observers.

“I’m for Mitt Romney,” Bush told ABC News as he got on an elevator following a speech on human rights just a block from the White House.

While Bush’s support was far from earth-shattering, he has been absent from the 2012 campaign trail and, until now, had not talked much about the race.

That said, Romney did get formal backing from Bush’s father, former President George H. W. Bush, and his wife Barbara, in March.

ABC News said people who once worked in the Bush administration said they doubted he would campaign for Romney this year. Some political analysts say it could be that Bush’s name still carries too much negative connotation and could hurt Romney’s effort.

Bush was speaking today at an event to promote the George W. Bush Presidential Center’s campaign for human rights activists around the world, the report said.
