The president holds a high level of celebrity status in the U.S. today. In case you haven’t noticed, you’ll find stories about him in the news every day. So it’s important to think about Executive power in our government, and to also think about how that power is limited.
Write a three to five (3-5) page essay on presidential power addressing the following points. (Your paper should largely focus on Chapter 11 in the Gaddie textbook, but you will also be using articles to more fully develop your discussion.) Go beyond just answering the questions to develop some insights and analysis!
Use the textbook and two or more articles that you choose from the list of sources below to help you develop your paper and answer the questions.
