Abstract
James Madison was one of the most influential figures in American politics and is known for his role in the ratification of the Constitution, but he is relatively unknown for his role as president. This essay reevaluates Madison's performance as president by closely examining the actions he took, his rationale for taking those actions, and the consequences that resulted. I conclude that, despite his above-average ratings in presidential studies, the decisions Madison made were flawed and almost resulted in disastrous outcomes for the nation.
