Summary: Although the institutional framework established by the Constitution over 200 years ago remains largely unchanged, the role of the president continues to grow in complexity and scope. The modern president is chief executive, head of state, commander-in-chief, legislative manager, and party leader. He governs more through skilled political leadership than by the assertion of constitutional privileges. Artfully balancing the historical foundations of the office with an morealysis of the increasingly political nature of the presidency, the authors assess the institution, the individuals who have served, the president's interactions with the public and with other government branches, and the chief executive's impact on public policy.
