The U.S. Constitution says very little about the duties and powers of the head of the nation s executive branch. The Constitution s authors were much more certain about what they didn t want in a president than what they did want. When George Washington took the oath of office to become the first president of the United States, he governed the country with authority and a sense of what a president should be. Since then, U.S. presidents have used his example and Article II of the Constitution as a guide for running the country. Those who have challenged the Constitution, defied it, or ignored it have been defeated by it. The Constitution, with its system of checks and balances, remains the heart of the U.S. government.

About the Author:

Bonnie Hinman has written more than twenty-five books for young people, including books about the Massachusetts Bay Colony, William Penn, and Benjamin Banneker. She first studied the U.S. Constitution in elementary school and wondered how such a short document could govern the entire United States. She was glued to the television the weekend after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. She also spent many hours watching the Watergate conspiracy unravel on television in 1974, and the impeachment of Bill Clinton in 1998 and 1999. Hinman lives in Southwest Missouri with her husband, Bill, near her children and five grandchildren.
