why would Nullification would have had the effect of returning the nation to the Articles of Confederation

    I'm not sure which Nullification you are speaking about, but in the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions of 1798-1799 Thomas Jefferson and James Madison argued a state had the right to nullify a federal law. The Articles of Confederation, by creating a weak central government, had a focus on states rights rather than federal. The Constitution changed that in 1789 by creating a stronger federal government. If a state nullified a federal law it would bring states rights back to the forefront, therefore returning the nation to the principles of the Articles of Confederation.
