...They first say, "No, we’re going to divide power. The states will have some power. The federal government will have some power." No, no. The Anti-federalists keep focusing on this issue of sovereignty. There must be one final supreme lawmaking authority. And Wilson says, "Yes. We agree. It’s in the people!" That is a brilliant conception. It doesn't mean that all power is derived from the people. He’s saying that the final lawmaking authority rests with the people and that they dole out bits and pieces of it to their various agents. Wilson is probably the most important intellectual figure laying out this theory of the Constitution and the notion of the sovereignty of the people.
