Fall 2009 not offered
This course has three aims: to survey the institutional development and current operation of the presidency; to examine the politics of presidential leadership, including the processes of selection of governance; and to consider the interaction of the two. Topics to be addressed include the constitutional framework; Federalist-Antifederalist debate, especially the American ambivalence toward executive power; historical development of the office and its relation to party systems; the process of nominating and electing the president; and the relationship of the office to the other branches.
