What are the bounds of Presidential responsibility?

Neither the left nor the right sees the president as the Framers saw him: a constitutionally constrained chief executive charged with faithful execution of our laws.

Combining historical scholarship, legal analysis, and cultural commentary, the book argues that the presidency needs to be reined in, its powers checked and supervised, and its wartime authority put back under the oversight of the Congress and the courts.

As the 2008 presidential election heats up, please join us for a lively discussion of this very timely analysis of presidential power with Gene Healy, senior editor at the Cato Institute.
