The Presidency 41

The following is an extract from Trust and the Presidency. You can see the whole thing here:

2.15 Political parties can divert accountability away from Congress.  The Constitution mandates that presidents shall faithfully execute the laws adopted by Congress.  The president’s motivation to do so may be reduced when their party is not supportive of some laws.  A president blessed by a sufficiently large political base and a well-organized party may be in a position to run against congressional mandates.
