Those taking the Presidency and Public Administration (PAPA 6254), our first meeting of the semester is Thursday, January 22. Please review the following materials before we meet. Review the U.S. Constitution, Articles I and II. And read Federalist Papers #s 10, 23, 48, 51, 70-72, 76. Full text copies of the Federalist Papers are available online here and here and here.  Our first meeting will be dedicated to the presidency as the product of design. What were the Framers trying to accomplish through the design of the U.S. presidency? What were they seeking to avoid? What ideas and legacies did they draw on?
