Elaine Kamarck is an author and the director of the Center for Effective Public Management at the Brookings Institution. In her new book, Why Presidents Fail and How They Can Succeed Again, Kamarck surveys recent presidential failures to understand why Americans have lost faith in their leaders. She argues that presidents today spend too much time talking and not enough time governing. As a Harvard academic and former White House insider, Kamarck explains the difficulties of governing in our modern political landscape, and offers examples and recommendations of how our next president can not only recreate faith in leadership but also run a competent, successful administration.
