It wasn't signed until 1789 and not 1787. The reason is that many wouldn't sign without a Bill of Rights and that took a couple of years to add. After it was signed Washington was elected President with John Adams as Vice President. Washington's administration set up in Philadelphia ( today there is a grassy green in Liberty Bell park where his house and offices were located) and he began the work of setting up the new nation. He was smart because he knew what he did would be copied by future Presidents. He was right. There was a lot to do for the new nation. The war ruined the economy and there were debts to pay, the structure of the government had to be set up and various departments created. The politics was very bad between the federalist and anti federalist fractions. Washington didn't believe in political parties so he tried to stay away from the arguments.
