    Franklin was thinking very far ahead. True, his proposal was voted down; but it was discussed, and the idea had been planted. People began to think about it. Ben was a very canny practical politician. I doubt he expected his proposal to be accepted on the first try. But the chain of events that led from the Albany Congress to the Constitution is in good part Ben’s handiwork. Even if the final product wasn’t quite what anyone would have expected at the time.
