Does the general American populace prefer an individual thinker in the White House or a more predictable president who performs according to expectation? Are independent leaders more respected and embraced by the public? In this film, The American President: An Independent Cast of Mind, presidential scholar Richard Neustadt examines these questions, citing past presidents who marched to a different drummer. John Adams, Zachary Taylor, Rutherford Hayes, and Jimmy Carter each struggled in their terms, and two who tried for another term were not re-elected.
