Why presidents fail

by Elaine C. Kamarck | 30 May 2016
Synopsis
At the beginning of the century, the majority of Americans were satisfied with the way things were going in the United States. And then a slow decline began, seemingly uninterrupted by changes in party or achievements by the White House. As the campaigning for the next president begins, the question we ask ourselves now is who will be the most competent leader? In Why Presidents Fail and How They Can Succeed Again, Elaine Kamarck asks another important question: When did Americans lose faith in their leaders? And how can they get it back?Kamarack argues that presidents today spent too much time talking, and not enough time governing. After decades of ""imperial"" and ""rhetorical"" presidencies, we are in need of a ""managerial"" president. In her fully readable and accessible book, she explains the difficulties of governing in our modern political landscape, and offers examples and recommendations of how our next president can not only recreate faith in leadership, but also run a competent, successful administration.
