This course explores the presidency of Bill Clinton from several perspectives, all grounded in the discipline of political science: the administration's policy making; presidential power and leadership; crises and turning points in the Clinton administration; campaigning and communications skills of the president; the administration's relations with the press, political parties and groups; and the legacy of the Clinton presidency.  As we analyze these topics, we will also consider the Constitutional framework as it affects the presidential office and executive-legislative relations and trends in the domestic and international environments that affected the Clinton presidency.
