Every four years the American public goes to the polls in hopes of electing a hero to the presidency, trying to find someone larger than life. But heroes are hard to find and sometimes they turn out to be villains. Senior presidential scholar Erwin Hargrove recommends that we shift our sights to electing an effective president instead, and here he shows us how to assess effective presidencies. To address the central question of whether presidents make a difference, Hargrove asks about the most important things each president attempted. He finds that much of the time, eoeeventfule leadership prevails, but that some presidents may be judged to be eoeevent-makinge for good or ill. As George W. Bush has demonstrated, event- making leaders run great riskse"sometimes challenging the Constitutione"even as they attempt greatness. By contrast, effective presidents combine eventful leadership with a modulated sense of personal ambition, as Barack Obama illustrates. Hargrove examines this winning combination in light of historical context and a fine gauge of personal skills and attributes. Reviewing eventful and event-making presidencies of the last 50 years, Hargrove comes down on the side of effectiveness over the special effects of the pyrotechnic presidencies of the past.The second edition of this classic work adds a new chapter on Barack Obama and updates coverage of the end of the George W. Bush administration. Presidential scholar Erwin Hargrove extends his analytical framework of presidential effectiveness to show how Obama combines eventful leadership with pragmatism in moving the nation forward in an intensely polarized partisan environment.
