The Presidency 1. Framers and the presidency 1. The framers intentionally designed the presidency to allow its occupant to rise to demands for quick and concerted action during times of national crisis 1. Created a focal point for coordinating collective action 1. President best situated to propose a coordinated response 2. Avoid a president who would use the temporary advantages conferred by a national crisis to permanently alter the constitutional order 2. Framers rejected a plural executive 1. The executive would thus contain none of the internal checks provided by competition for influence among members 2. Instead, they gave the executive enough resources for coordinating national responses during emergencies insufficient authority to usurp the Constitution 3. Leadership gravitates toward the office during moments of national urgency 4. But it does not involve suspension of the constitutional prerogatives that belong to the other institutions, and it dissipates as the crisis recedes 2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
