Synopsis by Alice Day
There is an abstract notion of doing things "the American way" that may be difficult to convey to people in foreign countries. As a nation, Americans understand this concept, and as a voting public, expect the president to embody the visionary ideal. In the film, The American President: The American Way, four presidents are examined for their unique abilities to understand the concept. Thomas Jefferson, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, and Ronald Reagan all adhered to this uniquely American way, which influenced their executive actions.
