Summary
Traces the changes in the Presidency from the 1930's to today. Shows how Presidents today are overtly active in the legislative process, use the media to appeal directly to the people and exercise leadership over an "institutional presidency" with thousands of aides. Cases studies include Johnson's personal campaign to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Nixon's use of the publicity from his attempted assassination to pass his tax cuts legislation and an introduction to President Clinton's "West Wing" support team.
