Can America Have (and Does It Want) Another Great President?
Universal agreement on those American Presidents that have achieved “greatness” yields a short list. Most will agree on Washington, Lincoln, and FDR… but then the debate begins in earnest. In his new book, “The End of Greatness: Why America Can't Have (and Doesn't Want) Another Great President,” Wilson Center Distinguished Scholar Aaron David Miller provides a challenging analysis of the nature of presidential leadership and what is required for a chief executive to attain that status. Miller previews the book in this edition of Wilson CenterNOW.
