This DVD is a fascinating program that analyzes the powers of the President from a legal and historical point of view. Past presidents had differing opinions on executive: some held very conservative view on its scope of authority, while others held a more liberal stance on the powers granted the president and a few overstepped its bounds. This includes not only Richard Nixon, but also Franklin D. Roosevelt and even Abraham Lincoln. Noted educators and elected officials offer insight on this important facet of American political science. Approximate running time of 50 minutes.
