Nelson has formulated a comprehensive image of the tenor, talents, and temperaments essential for todayOs presidency, for those who aspire to assume leadership in the future and for those who select the leaders of our colleges and universities.... the agiantsa of old, contem~ porary presidents are found wanting in their use of the bully pulpit and moral persuasion in the public square. ... Presidents more and more are using op~ed essays in major newspapers as a part of their platform .
