Doc,

In placing Madison's comment regarding states intersts in their proper context, it is fairly obvious why the camps divided into slave and not-slave - for that debate, and not for others.

Madison was not describing the entire convention - only the portion of it deciding if slaves counted as 1, 0 or 3/5...
