ALIR - The Presidency

This course will cover the constitutional and historical roots of the US presidency. We will start by talking about the seven basic roles that all US presidents play as part of their presidential responsibilities. Much of the course will trace the office's evolution and changes over time. We'll also discuss historians' rankings of the "best" and "worst" presidents. The final class will include discussion of the Obama and Trump presidencies.
