Imagine you have just been elected president. You're expected to fulfill your campaign promises, but you're also expected to solve the urgent crises of the day. The founders never intended for our system of checks and balances to have one superior Chief Magistrate, with Congress demoted to "the little brother who can't keep up." Dickerson draws on history and contemporary times to show why we need to reevaluate how we view the presidency, how we choose our presidents, and what we expect from them once they are in office. -- adapted from jacket
