Abstract:

By aggrandizing the powers of the Presidency -- to win a war which could so easily and so often have been lost -- Lincoln set the pattern for the future of American politics. Thenceforward, whenever the Republic was in mortal danger -- whether from foreign foes or from collapse at home -- The President, if popular and bold, could take charge. Thenceforth the division of powers, painstakingly imposed upon the written Constitution, could be overridden in a dark hour -- so long as the people who were aware of the darkness asked for light. Woodrow Wilson understood this, and Franklin Roosevelt, and Mr. Truman. - Introduction.
