Right, although it's not that simple. The feds can assume powers outside of
the constitution. But basically, the powers of the federal government are
defined by the Constitution, both what they can and cannot do.
The states have quite a bit of latitude that the feds don't, as long as it
doesn't run afoul of the U.S. Constitution. For example, Wyoming cannot deny
women the right to vote, as that would be against the 19th amendment.

Yep. If you look at it, technically, there's not a lot that says that I, as
a white, male, non-landowner can vote. (really, it's not terribly explicit)
But since no one says I can't, I can. No one says I can't have kids, not
have kids, own a pet, not own a pet, eat linguini, not eat linguini, etc.
The Constitution and the state versions tend to be rather vague about what
individuals can do in general, as the more detailed they try to be, the more
painful they get.
