Professor Stephen Wayne discusses American presidency and the troubles American presidents face. The American constitution created a system of checks and balances, which limits power and can make it hard for the president to create change. During presidential campaigns, candidates make promises that they cannot enact without Congress and promise more than they could ever accomplish.
