101096 Dual Executive The idea of an elective head of state for the American chief executive in its conception was virtually without precedent The idea of an American dual presidency split between domestic and foreign arenas is itself without precedent A dual presidency would suit America well due to the pressures of the office of President of the United States As Commander-in-Chief the President bears incredible pressures and responsibilities The President not only has power in the United States but also tremendous influence throughout the world It is not arrogant to change the presidency in order to manage Americas vast interests all over the globe The US is certainly not isolationistic anymore so creating an office for a foreign affairs executive is simply realistic Thus the President is not only torn between domestic and foreign responsibilities but she must find time to campaign A dual presidency with a domestic and foreign leader could divide these campaigning duties In addition a dual presidency is better adapted to handle simultaneous crises A dual presidency is a modern day answer to the realities of the American presidency Essentially the idea of a dual executive is rooted in the concept of a plural executive Back in the time of the writing of the Constitution some anti-federalists wanted a weak executive This weak executive was called a plural executive or an executive council Storing 49 The purpose of such a plural executive was not only to weaken the executive but also to prevent a monarchy from ruling In fact an anti-federalist named Randolph opposed an executive-of-one so much that he believed it to be the foetus fetus of the monarchyStoring 93 Yet today the threat of monarchy is laughable
