Synopsis by Alice Day
In the film The American President: Compromise Choices, the world of politics seems to deal with compromises more often than not. Frequently, a better and more qualified candidate is passed over in favor of a lesser known and less controversial person. While the one may prove to be a more decisive leader of the country, the other would be inoffensive to the voting public. Two presidents who found themselves elevated to the White House based on their lack of negative aspects were Franklin Pierce and Warren Harding, whose terms demonstrated the absence of strong leadership. But James Garfield and Gerald Ford rose to the responsibilities of their office and put in strong showings.
