David Orentlicher. Two presidents are better than one: the case for a bipartisan executive branch. New York University Press, 2013.

JK516.O75 2013

 

David Orentlicher has a solution to partisan gridlock in Washington: a dual presidency. With bipartisan representation in the White House, he argues, the decisions of the executive branch would be more representative of the electorate as a whole, and would encourage cooperation across party lines in Congress. Orentlicher supports his argument with examples drawn from plural executive branches in other countries, and discusses the prospects for establishing a two-person presidency by constitutional amendment.
