  • Presidential Debate 96 - 387 words
    Presidential Debate `96 In the 1996 presidential debate, there were many controversial points brought up and discussed by the candidates. There were opportunities to turn the debate into a verbal cock fight, but the President was a model of restraint and Senator Dole simply did not choose to aggravate the president to an extreme. When Senator Dole referred to the `92 debate and how the President referred to Bush as Mr. Bush, not Mr. President, and how he himself would address Clinton as Mr. President, it was evident that Dole was going to debate to make Clinton mad enough to make a mistake. Senator Dole was apparently trying to bring out the beast in Clinton, but he kept cool, while Clinton ...

("Where the voters are") Who would think that such a short confrontation between the candidates would sway the vote of so many viewers?

The Bush vs. Gore campaign was at its climax in late October of 2000. The people of the nation were casting their votes and the two leading Candidates were neck and neck. The tension was sky high on Election Day, November 7th, 2000. Behold, we were to have a new president; well, possibly. Election experts have called evolution instead of a revolution in changing the way the country goes about its elections. Never in history has such controversy risen as in Election 2000: Bush vs. Gore. Election 200 has raised serious co ...

    Presidential Election 2000 As generations pass, and times change, the people of the United States change as well. What may have been a major issue in the 1980 election might not even concern voters in 2000. Economic issues are continually changing with the times. Each election develops its own "personality." Despite agreeing on some issues, the four major [now just two] candidates in the upcoming 2000 presidential election hold different opinions on three major economic issues: tax reform, health care, and free trade/immigration. One of the most important issues of the 2000 presidential election is tax reform. This topic, possibly more than any other issue in the election, reflects the great ...

When asked about the large population of uninsured children, McCain responded, "Weve got to expand the childrens health insurance program. And Ill tell you what: I have the guts to take the money where it shouldnt be spent in Washington, and put it where it should be spent, including 10% of the surplus."8 Another crucial issue in the upcoming election is free trade and immigration, a topic that seems to reveal only minimal differences among the four candidates. Bill Bradley, the most liberal candidate on this topic, strongly supports allowing immigrants to remain in the United ...

In the beginning, Madison and the Jeffersonians were placed in a gridlock with Hamilton and his school of political philosophy. Andrew Jackson fought to extend the powers of the President, then Congress spent 50 years fighting to repeal the powers of the Executive. Abraham Lincoln refined Jacksonian presidential politics, then Congress impeached his successor, Andrew Johnson, for fear of another quasi - tyrannical President.

    Presidential Powers In every government there is a ceremonial head of the government who is the symbol of all the people in the nation. As Howard Taft put it, "The personal embodiment and representative of their dignity and majesty" (McClenaghan, pg. 316). That person is the Chief of State or more commonly known as the President. One of the main factors that cause the presidents to be viewed as a symbol of the American community is the president's ceremonial duties which are named in the Constitution. The Constitution states several ceremonial duties that the presidents are "obliged" to perform. They are required to take an oath of office, periodically inform Congress of the State of Union, ...
