    This is an essay about why I think Bill Clinton should resign, and also why I think he won't. You see, Bill Clinton is a man without morals. Well, actually that's not quite true. He does appear to have morals; he just sacrifices them to expediency whenever the opportunity arises. If absolute selflessness with respect to one's values were a virtue, Bill Clinton would be the most virtuous president the United States has ever had. Fortunately, most people do not hold this view of morality or ethics...

  • Role Of The President As Executive

    I disagree with Stephen Hess' contention that modern President's are woefully miscast in the role of manager of the Executive Branch.

Today, the President has develope...
