Abstract:

The President, Burns argues, is the vital center of American politics, but he should not campaign alone or try to govern alone, removed from the people and divorced from the political party system. Burns's proposals to restore both the American presidency and citizen-based politics are bold: abolish the Electoral College, repeal the 22d Amendment, and restructure the terms of office for the Senate and the House of Representatives. Most of all, however, Burns wants to enliven American democracy and the potential for moral, dynamic leadership from the Oval Office by means of an appeal to citizen-activists to enter the public arena and help save American politics from the professionals, pollsters, and pundits.
