In this four part, prerecorded series, Ambassador Chase Untermeyer gives an in-depth look at the modern presidency. He describes how the job has grown since 1789, with emphasis on key presidents such as Washington, Jackson, Lincoln, Woodrow Wilson, and the two Roosevelts. There is a special discussion of the power of the president and the challenges the office faces from Congress, the courts, the media, and the bureaucracy.
