Book News Annotation:

In this text Kernell (political science, U. of California, San Diego) uses a number of case studies to help describe the theories and practices US presidents use to get the support they need. For example, he contrasts the practices of Reagan, who used public opinion as a lever and Clinton, who ensnared himself by bargaining, and shows how courting the public has shifted from institutionalized pluralism to individualized pluralism. He describes the politics of divided government, the ongoing relationship between presidents and the press, the trend to "go public," the role of opinion leadership in foreign affairs, the declining effectiveness of public addresses and the potential for pathology in the form of mistaking bad news for bias and even pandering.
