Chapter 12 -the imperial presidency- an office so powerful that constitutional checks and balances were no longer an effective constraint on it -the imperiled presidency- an office too weak to meet the nations need for executive leadership -heroic presidency- an office that is the inspirational center of american politics Foundations of the Modern Presidency -presidents have control over the military but only congress can declare war -but for the most part, the wars launched have been by the president and not congress -presidents have the power to act as diplomatic leaders w/ other countries, subject to approval by a 2/3 vote of the senate -framers had in mind that congress would define the nations foreign policy objectives, while the president oversee their implementation -president has “executive power” -the responsibility to execute the laws truthfully and to appoint major administrative i.e. heads of federal agencies *executive agreements- formal agreements that presidents make on their own wit foreign nations -presidents has legislative authority -including use of the veto and the ability to propose legislation the changing conception of the presidency whig theory-holds that the presidency is a limited office * * stewardship theory-the president is allowed to act as they choose as long as it doesn't violate the law The need for a presidency the need for a strong presidency -Congress is a fragmented institution backs through negotiation bargaining and compromise * indirect primary- voters are not using the nominees directly but rather are choosing delegates who in turn select nominees * Open party caucuses-meetings open to any registered party voters who wants to attend -party voters have more control by requiring state to select their delegates through either primary elections or through the Open party caucuses The nominating campaign: primaries and caucuses * invisible primary-no votes are cast in this period. It is the time when candidates demonstrate through their fundraising stability pole standing and debate performance that they are serious contenders for the nomination * monumentum- a strong showing in the early contest that contributes to voter support and subsequent ones -they get the most money, press and attention -no one who has started off lousy has ever caught up in won a nomination The national party convention -brings together the delegates elected the state caucuses in primaries Who will prove a party platform and formally nominate the party presidential and vice presidential candidate -serves as a time for the party to heal any divisions created by the dominating race and to persuade party faithful to rally behind its presidential candidate -parties choose their VP nominees *unit rule- all states except Maine and Nebraska grant all their electoral votes as a unit to the candidate who wins the states population white house office- serves the president most direct cabinet-serves as the presidents main advisory group honeymoon period-time following the president first term where everyone is on their side presidential approval rating- high at the start of the presidents tim in office. Power rest in part on a claim to national leaders and the strength of the claim is roughly proportional to the presidents public support
