This was the final paper for my Leadership in Management course. Unfortunately, it was the last assignment due in my college career (and due at 8am the day after Clinic presentations), and it did not get the attention it should have…
This is the first paper I wrote for my Leadership in Management course, which I took second semester senior year. It was a pretty good course, although predictably Republican in its politics. This paper is a summary and analysis of The President, The Pope, and The Prime Minister. It may not be clear from below, but while I found the book interesting because I lack a good education in that time period, it’s also impressively slanted and not something you should take as gospel.
I had to write a final for my Presidential Primaries, Nominations, & Elections course. We were given a list of questions and had to provide essay answers to them. Mine follows! Continue reading “Paper: Presidential Final”
This was the final paper for my Presidential Primaries, Nominations, & Elections class. In it I study the impact of a President’s personality type on his electoral and governing success. I really liked the idea of the paper, but my professor rightly dinged me for not having enough data to support the conclusions I ended up drawing. (Such things are hard when you only have 43 samples to look at!) Continue reading “Paper: Presidential Personalities & Success”

My Presidential Primaries, Nominations, & Elections professor asked us to write a paper on whether this year’s Presidential election should be considered a realignment election. Continue reading “Paper: 2008 was not a Realignment Election”
I loved this class (Introduction to Constitutional Law: National Powers). When Prof Thomas spoke it often felt like I had Josh Lyman lecturing me and my ~5 classmates. And if I thought I could have made a living doing nothing but constitutional law I would have gone for it.
This time I’m looking at political advertising in the 1976 Presidential campaign. The professor sent us all to the Living Room Candidate site to watch Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford’s ads and do an analysis of them. Continue reading “Paper: Political Advertisements”
This is another paper from my Presidential Primaries, Nominations, & Elections course. It takes the form of a strategic memo for the McCain-Palin campaign a month before the 2008 election. Continue reading “Paper: McCain Strategic Memo”
This is a short paper I wrote in my Presidential Primaries, Nominations, & Elections class. It briefly describes the Republican nominating convention from 1860, and the Democratic nominating convention from 2000, and compares them. Continue reading “Paper: Conventions Then & Now”
