Nalyze the characteristics of an effective president.

Please write a 7-10 page essay (double-spaced, 12 pt. font) in which you analyze the characteristics of an effective president. In your essay, please do the following:

Describe the characteristics of effective presidents
Describe the challenges that presidents confront
Describe the way presidents can successfully meet these challenges

Next, select at least three candidates for president to analyze. Draw on popular accounts available on the Internet to address the following points:

The candidatei??s personal history
The candidatei??s experience

Here are some candidates (either announced or very likely to announce):

Hillary Clinton

Ted Cruz
Rand Paul
Scott Walker
