Chapter 12 Part I


22nd Amendment
25th Amendment


Why was the 22nd Amendment ratified, and how might it have reflected FDR's presidency versus ideal presidential authority?

How were the rules for presidential succession vague prior to the 25th Amendment?

On what grounds can a president be impeached?  Why can a president be impeached for an act that is NOT criminal?

What are the general powers given to the president by the Constitution.  What kinds of circumstances have allowed presidents to assume additional powers (give an example)?
