Questions from a fall semester final exam

Political Science 317: "The American Presidency"

  1. Pick a president and discuss his presidency in terms of the "shadow" cast upon him by FDR. Make sure you refer to Leuchtenburg's In the Shadow of FDR.
     
  2. a) In The American Presidency, Milkis and Nelson associate John F. Kennedy with the "personal presidency." What do they mean?
     
    b) "New Covenant" was a major theme of the 1992 Clinton campaign. What role did it play in the Clinton presidency?
     
    c) Milkis and Nelson entitle their chapter on Reagan "Restoration of Presidential Power?" Why the question mark?
     
  3. Is George W. Bush a great president? Discuss, using principles of analysis derived from Landy and Milkis's Presidential Greatness.
