Is it time to rethink the American presidency? That’s the big question posed by 60 Minutes correspondent John Dickerson. “Americans need their president to succeed,” writes Dickerson, “but the presidency is now set up for failure.” Arguing that the job requirements—commander-in-chief, chief executive, chief diplomat, chief legislator, chief of party, chief voice of the people, first responder, chief priest, and world leader—as well as the expectations to fulfill campaign promises and solve the surprising and urgent crises of the day—make it almost impossible to do. Join this brilliant thinker to hear about the ideas and proposals from his new book, The Hardest Job in the World, about how we view the presidency, choose the candidate, and what we expect from them once they are in office.
