Individually, America's Founders were by many contemporary standards 'elitists,' if not in necessarily negative ways. As a group, the Founders combined respect for elitism and pluralism in their remarkably original political ideas -- and in the structuring and divisions of the 'grand experiment' of the new nation that they founded.
