Abstract Episode 9: The powers of the presidency have expanded with the growth of the nation, but the process has been anything but smooth. The prerogatives of the presidency are uncertain and their assertion contested. This episode profiles Andrew Jackson, Grover Cleveland, Theodore Roosevelt and Richard Nixon. Episode 10: As our constitutional system has developed, the cooperation between the branches has broken down at crucial junctures. This episode examines presidential leadership in an era of an increasingly divided government. Profiles James Madison, James K. Polk, William H. Taft and Bill Clinton.
