Executive Study

"The executive power shall be vested in a president of the United States of America." (Article 113 Sec. 1, U.S. Constitution) With these words, the Founding Fathers created an office that has come to be called the most powerful in the world. As such the presidency has been the object of extensive study and speculation. And understandably, the events of the past year have heightened interest what has been called L;44: 'peculiar institutions."
