Overview

This book calls for moral presidential leadership and a return to a 'heroic presidency.' Surveying presidential character throughout our history, Robert E. Denton, Jr., argues that character and integrity are essential presidential traits. He compares the scandal-filled terms of Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon and looks at George W. Bush vis-^-vis the elections, September 11, and the Iraq War. He addresses the myth of separating private from public behavior and shows how virtually everything presidents do or say influences their decisions and impacts citizens. Moral Leadership and the American Presidency is a must-read for anyone interested in the modern role of the president or in morality in American public life.
