A Call to Greatness: Challenging Our Next President
A Call to Greatness: Challenging Our Next President examines how our next President can learn from the successes and failures of past Presidents to be an effective leader during a time of tremendous challenges at home and abroad. The present state of our union requires a creative reexamination of our national interests, a comprehensive vision, a leader with the ability to organize and marshal the best people and resources and a leader with the capacity to communicate this vision to our citizens and the world. This book has been circulated amongst the candidates for the 2008 United States Presidency prior to being published. The non-partisan, non-profit Center for the Study of the Presidency looks forward to the ensuing exchange of views on the nature of Presidential leadership and characteristics required of our next President.
