Eisenhower as Party Leader
Cornelius P. Cotter discusses the party leadership record of a president, Dwight Eisenhower, who was assumed to have eschewed a party role. He finds that Eisenhower had a clear conception of how the party related to his administration and consistently sought to influence the organization, leadership, and staffing of the Republican National Committee and to strengthen the party in the states.
