The character factor how we judge America's presidents by James P Pfiffner ( )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this consideration of "the character factor" and the presidency, veteran political analyst James P. Pfiffner leads us through a survey of three aspects of presidential character that have proved problematic for recent chief executives: lies, promise-keeping, and sexual probity. His goal is not to tell us which presidents have been "good" and which "bad." Rather, he helps us think critically and impartially about complex character issues and invites us to reach our own conclusions." "The Character Factor avoids both moral judgments and cynicism. It helps us look at our presidents (and our presidential candidates) without illusions, knowing that flawed men can still be great leaders but that some flaws deserve defeat at the polls - or even the ultimate presidential sanction, impeachment."--Jacket

Understanding the presidency ( Recording )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The selections in this reader were chosen with two aims in mind: to provide a historical perspective, so often neglected in similar texts that explains how the events of the past two centuries led us to where we are today, and to present the most important current issues that are shaping the Bush administration and the presidency. Some articles are a combination of "classic" scholarly analyses, the best of current scholarship, and engaging insights into the nature of the contemporary presidency. -http://www.ablongman.com
