Abstract:     
In the wake of the scandals plaguing Nixon's presidency, this examination looks at how power has migrated from Congress to the President over the course of the Nation's history. This article also addresses the common concern for a greater need for control over the President and what advantages a more flexible Executive Branch carries with it.
