Yet no one until now has documented the phenomenon of the "permanent campaign" and analyzed its impact on the executive office. He focuses on the rise in presidential fundraising and the targeting of key electoral states throughout a president's term in office—illustrating that recent presidents have disproportionately visited those states that are important to their political prospects while largely neglecting those without electoral payoff.
Doherty analyzes what these changing dynamics portend for the nature of presidential leadership, contending that while such strategies can at times strengthen a president's hand, they can also undermine his role as a unifying national leader, heighten public cynicism, and limit prospects for bipartisan compromise.
Drawing on new systematic evidence of presidential fundraising and travel, comprehensive argument about the causes, indicators, archival research at presidential libraries, and accounts by presidents and their aides, Doherty musters a mountain of evidence to offer an objective, and implications of the rise of the permanent campaign as no previous book has done—an evenhanded account that seeks to disparage no individual president.
The Rise of the President's Permanent Campaign #ad - He also shows how decisions about electoral matters previously made by party officials are now made by voter-conscious operatives within the White House. In this eye-opening book, brendan doherty provides empirical evidence of the growing focus by American presidents on electoral concerns throughout their terms in office, clearly demonstrating that we can no longer assume that the time a president spends campaigning for reelection can be separated from the time he spends governing.
To track the evolving relationship between campaigning and governing, Doherty examines the strategic choices that presidents make and what those choices reveal about presidential priorities.

Overreach: Leadership in the Obama PresidencyPrinceton University Press #ad - Thus, to avoid overreaching, presidents should be alert to the limitations of their power to persuade and rigorously assess the possibilities for obtaining public and congressional support in their environments. Yet, two years into his administration, the public resisted his calls for support and Congress was deadlocked over many of his major policy proposals.
The president's proposals alienated many Americans and led to a severe electoral defeat for the Democrats in the 2010 midterm elections, undermining his ability to govern in the remainder of his term. As a result, expensive, he proposed a large, and polarizing agenda in the middle of a severe economic crisis.
