A short video episode from Crash Course Government and Politics focused on presidential power. The series uses humor and engaging visuals to teach relevant content about the Constitution, the roles of the president, and the limits of presidential power. A good tool for a preview or review of the topics. From appointing judges and granting pardons, to vetoing laws and acting as the nation’s chief diplomat on foreign policy, the Commander in Chief is a pretty powerful person, but actually not as powerful as you might think. The Constitution also limits presidential powers to maintain balance among the three branches of government.
