Whereas their was no explicit requirement of the delegates the states sent in May of 1787.

It is noteworthy that they were all Christian men. Educated. Each held at least one public office.

In the end, Each state had only one vote. So who made the vote was figured out by their respective delegations.

First order of business was who was going to oversee the convention. This was President Washington.

200 years later I cannot think of a President that the US people would want to oversee such a new convention, as the convention would lose credibility and quickly be viewed as a partisan activity. And, not the framing of a document for two more centuries.
