It was the Founding Fathers' keen grasp of human psychology and their use of historical examples to make their points that kept Mary Webster working on this new edition of The Federalist Papers and annotated Constitution.
Mary was a political junkie when she started reading the Papers. She found herself disagreeing with some ideas she heard from politicians and pundits, but she didn't have the background to explain why they were bad ideas. She was very surprised and delighted to discover that the same discussions she heard on C-SPAN were in The Federalist Papers.
