The Presidency 19

Free course on the presidency. One paragraph per day.

20.          To faithfully execute the laws of the land, the presidency was assigned executive power that was mostly undefined.  There was a general understanding during the Constitutional Convention that a president would need to supervise a bureaucracy composed of skilled, knowledgeable personnel who could help implement the laws of the land. This understanding was not spelled out.

The next section reviews what little was made clear.
