They had to deal with dissention, even amongst themselves. Many people at that time did not want to use the term "national" because they felt it would take too much power from the states, and give too much to the US government. Some wanted to use the term "Federal" instead. The smaller states wanted to make sure that they had an equal voice in the government. Another obstacle was keeping the procedures private. They did not want anyone from the group giving out details of their discussions until everything had been finalized. They worried that if people got hold of some of the things that were just being SUGGESTED, that there would be crowds of protestors, people refusing to even look at the final version, etc.

There is a difference between what being a "founding father" is, and being a framer of the constitution, as there were some of our founding fathers who were not at the Convention when the Constitution was formed.
